Miss Buncle's Book

D. E. Stevenson

Who knew one book could cause so much chaos?

Barbara Buncle is in a bind. Times are harsh, and Barbara's bank account has seen better days. Maybe she could sell a novel…if she knew any stories. Stumped for ideas, Barbara draws inspiration from her fellow residents of Silverstream, the little English village she knows inside and out.

To her surprise, the novel is a smash. It's a good thing she wrote under a pseudonym, because the folks of Silverstream are in an uproar. But what really turns Miss Buncle's world around is this: what happens to the characters in her book starts happening to their real-life counterparts. Does life really imitate art?

A beloved author who has sold more than seven million books, D. E. Stevenson is at her best with
Miss Buncle's Book
, crafting a highly original and charming tale about what happens when people see themselves through someone else's eyes.

“Love it, love it, love it! There are no vampires, no faeries, no weird creatures, just a sweet story about real people living in a world I've always dream of.” —
