About the Book

Have you ever travelled somewhere and been drawn to go back again and again and again? Well, that is what Bruges, Belgium has done to me! What is it? The people, the canals, the cobblestones, the magnificent churches, the medieval history? Could I have lived here long, long ago?

As the train leaves, I look out the window until I can see Bruges no more, and then my tears begin to gently fall and I whisper, “I’ll be back.”

Come with me as I begin my first trip to Bruges in 1982…

‘Walk the ancient cobblestones between historic buildings and breathe in the magic of Bruges as Margaret has done over many years, finding new in the old and old in the new, in this gripping and totally novel approach to her favourite city.

Gwen Molnar, author of Casey Templeton teen mysteries’.
