Fourteen year old Lynne Jones had lived in a Children’s Home since her parents were killed in a train crash. The only possession Lynne had from the past was a smiling handcarved wooden doll. On her way for a holiday Lynne discovered another doll almost identical to her own – the second doll wasn’t smiling. Lynne discovered that the man who made the doll was travelling along the coast. Convinced that he could tell her something about her past, Lynne set out to find the stranger.
