The Summer Tree Readalong: Week Four

It's always bittersweet to finish a readalong, because on the one hand I couldn't wait to get to the end and find out what happens but on the other I will miss being part of this reading journey with such wonderful companions! This week, everything is happening, so please beware of spoilers going forward. Thank you to the magnificent Mayri the Bookforager for the closing questions - let's get to it!

So welcome, Lucy Holland, to the Book Nook.
