Eleven-year-old Emily doesn’t think Badger Cottage – where she’s had to move with her vet father after her mum died – will ever be home. But there is something out there that needs her; a bright pair of eyes in the darkness.

In the middle of a fierce battle between a conservation project to rewild the lynx in the woods and the local farmers, Emily tries to shield a baby lynx she calls Lotta, afraid it will be killed by the person who killed its mother. Can Emily work out who the illegal hunter is in time? Who can she trust?

    You will love snuggling up with this wintry tale by talented new author Sarah J Dodd.
    Keeper of Secrets is a fabulous, dramatic tale about, Emily, a young girl who is struggling with grief and a house move to the countryside.
    She soons learns of a rewilding project, which has seen lynx reintroduced to the area – and not everyone is in favour of the scheme – so much so that one of the adults is shot.
    When Emily finds the kitten she feels unable to confide in anyone – but how long can she keep Lotsa secret?
    A fast, thrilling read with a lovely ending.
    I’m really looking forward to reading more from Sarah.
