‘AN IRRESISTIBLE BLEND OF MAGIC AND HISTORICAL FANTASY’ Young Folks

An engrossing tale of love, sacrifice, family ties and magic set in the aftermath of World War II – perfect for fans of A Discovery of Witches, Outlander and Nora Roberts.

Barrie Anne Blythe and her Aunt Charlotte have always known that the other residents of their small coastal community find them peculiar. It is the price of concealing their strange and dangerous family secret.

But two events threaten to upend their lives for ever: the arrival of an abandoned baby with a hint of power like their own, and the reappearance of Barrie Anne’s long-lost husband – who is not quite the man she thought she married. Barrie Anne and Charlotte must decide how far they are willing to go to protect themselves – and the child they think of as their own – from suspicious neighbours, the government and even their own family . . .

B&N SCI-FI AND FANTASY BLOG
An irresistible blend of magic and historical fantasy
YOUNG FOLKS
I'm still feeling a little bowled over by how much I liked this book . . . Completely engrossing and hard to put down
BIBLIOSANCTUM
The tiny touches of magic realism, fantasy, and science fiction are intriguing elements, but the strength of Morgan's powerful story is her depiction of this time and place and the everyday struggles of determined women. A great choice for readers who enjoy novels by Alice Hoffman and Barbara Kingsolver
BOOKLIST
A compelling, relationship-driven family drama with speculative elements and plenty of mystery, this is a page turner that you won't be able to put down . . . I can hardly wait for Louisa Morgan's next book, and I'll be the first person in line to read it!
