In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday.
But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled 'The Lord of Winter' in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seascape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances - including a museum curator's magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy - she plans on solving it. And then, one morning, Kate wakes up to a world changed forever.
For the Lord of Winter is coming - and Kate has a very important decision to make. Inspired by the Doctor Who episode The Bells of Saint John, this charming story is read by Clare Corbett. 2 CDs. 1 hr 57 mins.
