Anna Partridge is house-sitting for family friends in a very cold cottage in the middle of snowy France. She’ll be there for a fortnight over Christmas. It’s all rather quiet and unexciting until, on Boxing Day, a pheasant gets tangled in the pear tree in the garden. Anna can’t possibly leave it there but her rescue attempt goes horribly wrong, leaving her the stuck one. All she can do is wait to be rescued by a knight in shining armour, or at least a passing Frenchman in posh wellies… This is a short, festive, feel-good story to brighten your Christmas.
