Kim and her father have taken it upon themselves to look after the century-old statue of Anne Daniella Wadeley – the daughter of the founder of the seaside village, Wadeley-on-Sea. Daniella had fallen off her horse when she was eight years old and broke her neck.
Her heartbroken father carved a statue of her and placed it where she had fallen. As time wore on, Wadeley-on-Sea expanded and became a popular tourist venue. The statue in the forest became known – people attributing magic powers to her – writing notes and letters to her and dropping them in the available mailbox next to the statue.
When Anne Daniella's wooden statue started aging and falling apart, the decision was made that a new statue had to be brought into the forest. When townsfolk asked Kim who she thought would come for the unveiling of the new statue, she said, “All might come,” meaning everyone who had put addresses on their communication to the forest statue.
Never did she think someone who had been declared dead would be there for the unveiling ceremony.
