"The Earth Hums in B Flat" is set in a small Welsh town in the 1950s and features Gwenni a young girl with a troubled mother whose imagination and investigative spirit get her in too deep when trying to unravel the truth behind a local man’s death. There are some fabulously drawn characters and the whole story has a wonderfully magical edge to it whilst also dealing with some very real family dramas.
If you liked "What Was Lost" by Catherine O'Flynn then I think you're highly likely to enjoy this too. Whilst very different in many ways (and certainly in their settings) they are alike because of their charming, investigative, young girl lead characters who both try to make sense of the oddities of the adult world in their own unique and often entertaining ways.
