AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra's life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family. Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace - the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early twentieth century - Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for herself.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Oliver and Louis.
    More precious than all the spun gold in Fairyland.
  • Epigraph: 'But why must I bring back three strands of the Fairy Queen's hair?' spoke the young prince to the crone. 'Why no other number, why not two or four?'...The young prince nodded, for the wise crone spoke the truth. 'Thus must I have three strands, to weave my magic plait.'- The Fairy Plait, Eliza Makepeace.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording, large print.
