The Curious Story of Hattie Brown
by Martin Marriott
Bethnal Green, England, 1962
After the tragic death of her father, fourteen year old Hattie Brown begins to have a recurring dream of a strange and mysterious oak tree. Built into the trunk is a red door with a golden door knob and a lion head door knocker. The dream always ends with the door opening to reveal a blinding white light that Hattie walks into.
