A story of a secret world—such a world as every child should have—and of how the gift of that world remained as part of growing up. This is a story of Greta, who had always loved the fog, and one day when Blue Cove was lost in fog, she found her secret village there. The magic of woods and sea are in the story, as well as a sympathetic and true understanding of the imaginative child's private world, which is never confused with reality, and which sheds a warmth over the rest of life. This will appeal to children of fairy tale age and older.
