About this book
A glorious novel set in seventeenth-century London, and in the fairy world.
A glorious novel set in seventeenth-century London and in the fairy world. It tells the story of the daughter of a silk merchant who leaves her with her stepmother and a fundamentalist Puritan preacher. She is shut away in a chest and left to die, but emerges in the fairy world from which her mother came. Filled with enchantments, this will appeal to Gardner's existing fans and a much wider readership as well. Ages: 9+.
