Tara and her Country was a book written by Lilly Thompson, based on her imaginings of what happened to her best friend, Emily Floret, after she went missing. It was about a girl called Tara who found herself in a mystical country far away where she was forced to be ruler, and when Emily returned to England 65 years after she left, she found that the story was quite similar to her own experiences, except from the fact that she wanted to rule.
