Three short stories:
Tommy's War: a man, a dog, the blitz and changing the future.
Grace: a child returns to the mill where she died to find where she belongs.
The Copse: the return of the "Jack in the Wood", a boy bullied with nowhere left to turn but the copse.
Excerpt from Tommy's war:
With his chair positioned, Pete turned on his iPod and the guided meditation commenced. He closed his eyes and started to concentrate on his breathing. Hilary just viewed this as just more of Pete’s “mumbo jumbo,” even though he was now in his third week of disappearing to the bedroom on his own for half an hour each night. Pete immediately felt the feelings of detachment within his arms and legs and within ten minutes, he found himself within “The Gap.”
