For Francis, life is already confusing and unhappy. Then, his family breaks up and his mother is taken into hospital. When he goes to stay with a family who live on a farm by a river, he begins to feel a glimmer of hope at last. One day, he sets out on a journey that will change his life forever, as he tries to find out where the river begins.
The stories of Patricia St. John have been entertaining and challenging children and young people for generations. This new edition of ‘Where the River Begins’ is as fresh as when it was first published in 1980.
