The Sailing Ship Tree

by Berlie Doherty
£5.99   paperback  Catnip Publishing (2008)

The Sailing Ship Tree by Berlie Doherty This is the story of the Big House by the Mersey, and the people who lived there. In particular the twins Walter and Dorothy, whose father is the butler; Master George, the desperately lonely son of the wealthy owner; and Tweeny, the little maid treated hardly better than a slave.
 
In a way the house belongs to all of them, though the lives of the servants and masters couldn't be more different.
 
When disaster strikes and Master George needs help, the four children find reguge in the branches of a beautiful chestnut tree in the grounds of the house and there create a daring plot to help him escape to a new world.
