Selina the Silent One

Plot:

Selina Redfern, an  orphan unable to speak, lived with her grandparents in remote Eagle Valley, finding consolation in painting its creatures and wild beauty. The valley’s owner, Harvey Elton, wanted a licence to mine for minerals, but the inhabitants formed a preservation society. Stuart Bailey, an art teacher, offered to open an exhibition of Selina’s drawings to help save the valley. Selina, terrified of publicity, refused.

Lucy of the Lake

Plot

Stradway Mere was a long, boomerang-shaped lake in the valley which Lucy Langham knew and loved so well because of her skin-diving explorations of it.  The beautiful lake was in grave danger of being drained and filled in to make way for a new motorway. In her fight to prevent this happening, Lucy had, so far, won two allies. One was Miss Amelia Trouncer, a naturalist. The second was Peter Hoskinson, the world-famous ornithologist.
