She struggled Through the quickset hedge at the end of the orchard and met a strange assortment of people. The first was a girl who called herself Wisteria- she introduced Christina to others: a knight in armour, redskins, a smuggler or two, a princess in distress and many more.Christina was bewildered until Wisteria revealed to her the secret of the world beyond the quickset hedge.

then she understood many things- why, for instance, Eggy, an unpleasant hooligan, was jealous and resentful, and why he stirred up rebellion and tried to spoil everything. The climax of the story is a battle between Eggys supporters- pirates, teddy boys, smugglers, embittered schoolmasters, giants and ogres- on the one side, and Sir Greville Marchpane, the knight in armour, and his loyal followers, on the other.

Why this battle was fought and how Christina and her uncle put a stop to it is described in this curious haunting tale. The humour, suspense and poetic felling of THE STRANGE LIGHT will make the same appeal to new readers as to many already familiar with James Reevess stories and poems.
