Sarah Had­land — Lily, Sir Phillip’s daugh­ter

Pip must thwart the plans of his evil guardian Mr Gen­tly Benev­o­lent. Can under­wa­ter squir­rels, odd­ly placed church bells and a stint in the work­house foil him in his noble quest? Or will Aunt Lily and her Glouces­ter­shire rac­ing cows save the day?
