Clover is a determined young girl, she has her own mind and firmly trusts that ‘seeing is believing’. Unlike other girls her age, she doesn’t believe in fairy tales or knights on white horses, but she does have an adventurous and inquisitive streak.

It has a history though, one that no one will talk about. Clover however decides that she will find out what has happened there and why no one will discuss it.
