Freya’s Gold


Lin teases Freya about her imagination. It seems that Freya sees shadows everywhere and then monsters within those shadows. Then again, Freya wonders about how things work. It’s as though her brain fizzes with possibilities.

Therefore, when she is immediately wary of Mrs Oleander, neither her Granny Kate, nor Lin, pay much heed to Freya. Furthermore, when she describes seeing a boy hiding about the corners, Lin dismisses her. However, are these two occurrences interconnected? Then again, could Mrs Oleander, out of season surprise guest at Granny Kate’s Edge B & B as  untrustworthy as Freya suspects?

Freya has other things on her mind, like metal detecting with Lin, alongside the fearful citizenship presentation. However, how might these explode into an almighty awareness when Freya learns the real reason for Mrs Oleander’s appearance in Edge? Then again, how can a girl who seems scared of her own shadow hope to possibly lead her town into standing up to this imposter?
