Told entirely through letters between a city girl and a country boy, this is a totally engaging story that is simple to read but rich in content, with themes of growing up, loss, handicap, migrant experience, friendship, love that leads to marriage, and the greening of the land. Dear Anke, Thank you for the seeds. We found them on Wednesday. I planted them in old trays from the shed, but ants got some. My dad says it’s funny you sent mountain ash, because they used to grow here before we came. Yours faithfully,Frederick Forth. Then Anke launches her green balloon with an envelope of seeds attached, and Freddie finds it, they have no idea how the event will change their lives and transform the bare hills of Freddie’s farm for ever. This city girl and country boy are as different as two people can be, but Freddie’s first blunt letter begins a friendship that grows over the years, through all the adventures and challenges that come their way. Once you’ve read their letters, Freddie and Anke will be friends you’ll never forget.
