Book Jacket Summary
“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise…”

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 seacape, 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

My Thoughts
This is a short story that was shown in the most recent season of Doctor Who and if you are familiar with the show then you know that Amelia Williams is Amy Pond. She was stuck back in time and became an author of children’s books. Love it!
 This story is about a girl named Kate who has moved to a small coastal town and finds a painting in thrift shop that is in the center of an old poem:
When Summer Falls,
The Lord of Winter will arise
When darkness calls
And opens the Cold Lady’s eyes.
The Lord of Winter is awakened and it is up to Kate to send him back again.
This is a fun short story because you know right away that one of the characters is the Doctor and that she is basing it off her adventures with him. I highly recommend it to those who love Doctor Who!
