Yes I do. A book I read many times, although sadly my memory of the storyline is not as good as yours!

oh it was great. do you remember her finding the red swimming trunks and her father finally confessing that he was going to the south of france with his girlfriend and she couldn't come?

do you know what reminded me of it? the thread about tea in bottles! the baby having tea in it's bottles was one of the reasons she kidnapped him

Oh yes, my daughter's got it now. Una thought the baby's birthmarks were bruises so she rescued him.

I thought it was quite sad because I didn't see how Una would ever see Christopher/Ronnie again.

just found this old thread while i was googling the book!

my obsession carries on!

i need to get hold of a copy of this book!

just found this AGAIN!!! grin

I still have my copy of this book - I loved it when I was a child.
