Katie was eight years old when her grandma died, leaving a secret untold. Thanks to a house move, a visitor and an old leather-bound diary given to her from her grandfather, Katie begins to piece together the truth.

She is the heir to an almost-forgotten magical kingdom and with a little help from her grandma’s diary and some strange dreams, she realises that she must reconnect with her ancestors and make amends before it’s too late.

Carol-Anne was born in Fife, Scotland, before moving to the Midlands, when she was seven years old and to Cheshire when she was fifteen. It was a story told to her as a child that inspired her writing. Carol-Anne met her husband in Cheshire in 2012; they married in 2013 and three years later, Carol-Anne graduated from Staffordshire University with a PGCE in Primary Education. Having previously worked with younger children, Carol-Anne has a love for learning and loves to see the children in her care develop and grow. She now lives in Lancashire with her husband and their son. They enjoy family days out and have recently discovered their enjoyment for family cruises.

    A captivating story of a little girl finding out who she is and where she belongs. Full of vibrant descriptions and intrigue that captures the imagination... Once I started it, I found it was hard to put down. A beautifully well-written first novel for Carol-Anne.

  • Pauline

    Both my 11 year old daughter and myself, really enjoyed the story. It has everything - beautiful descriptions, excitement, intrigue, conflict and an important message. Telling the story from adult points of view as well as Katie's, gives a level of sophistication not usually found in a children's novel. We loved the twist in the tale at the end and can't wait for the next instalment! My daughter - usually a reluctant fiction reader - is reading it to her friends.

  • Natalie

    What an amazing read! I lost myself in this book, reading it cover to cover in one go. It’s one of those books where you want to curl up in your favourite chair with a cup of tea and let yourself immerse into the book. Can’t wait to hear more

  • Mandy

    Totally enthralled with this gorgeous book. Read cover to cover in a day and enjoyed every page. Carol-Anne you are a delightful writer who has captured the magic of faeries through a special relationship with a Grandma from childhood. I am left with the tingling feeling of wonderful legacies we leave our children and grandchildren. To cherish special relationships within the family and hold on to special bonds and memories always3N. Brilliant!

  • Rose

    This story was captivating, the kind that cannot be put down easily. A lovely book that could be enjoyed by anyone but children nearing their teenage year olds will find their imagination piqued. The imagery portrayed in the story is detailed and lifelike and I became totally immersed in the story setting. Carol-Anne writes at a level that encourages children to learn new words and idioms and I imagine this is her intention as both an educator and a story teller. I am already looking forward to the second book - I hope there is one as this book certainly hints at it.

  • Irene Melville

    I haven't read a book for over 2 years. started to read this and couldn't put it down.... I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for more.....magical!

  • Lynn T.

    Although this book is aimed at 'young adults', it is a magical story which can be enjoyed by ALL ages. It is an enchanting tale told by three generations of fairy/human crossover.

    A delightful book which I found hard to put down!
