Publisher's Summary

When Father is taken away unexpectedly, Roberta, Peter, Phyllis and their mother have to leave their comfortable life in London to go and live in a small cottage in the country.
The children seek solace in the nearby railway station and make friends with Perks the Porter and the Station Master himself. Each day, Roberta, Peter and Phyllis run down the field to the railway track and wave at the passing London train, sending their love to Father. Little do they know that the kindly old gentleman passenger who waves back holds the key to their father's disappearance.

Very good book, but abridged edition

The reader of this audio book has a wonderful voice to listen to, but I was disappointed that it was an abridged edition. Our school is unable to use it because it is not an unabridged edition.

Jenny Agutter at her best

Lovely to fall back into the gentle safety of childhood, lulled by Jenny revisiting one of her most famous environs. Most recommended. If your children don't love it, send for a doctor!
