Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Havent you ever just known something deep in your heart without reason?

Primrose Squarp simply knows her parents did not perish at sea during a terrible storm, but try convincing the other residents of Coal Harbour on that score. For all practical purposes, at least for the time being, Primrose is an orphan, and theres no great clamoring of prospective adopters. After realizing the impracticality of continuing to pay Miss Perfidy an hourly wage to baby-sit her, the town council is able to locate a relative, Uncle Jack, who reluctantly takes Primrose into his care. But true sanctuary can always be found at a restaurant called The Girl in the Swing, where everything-including lasagna-is served on a waffle.

Synopsis:

When her parents are lost at sea, Primrose moves in with her kind uncle, but still feels lonely. Her only refuge is a local restaurant where the owner serves everything on waffles, except advice, which is free.
