Review:

'Garner's imagination is compelling and the novel has real narrative drive... enjoyable and eloquent' Helen Dunmore, The Times (The Times)

'Darkly atmospheric, Garner's clean, spare prose conjures a strong ,simple narrative... a delight to curl up with' Metro (Metro)

'daughter of renowned children's author Alan Garner, Elizabeth displays similar inventiveness and command of atmosphere...it's a sad, sweet tale of the love and misunderstanding between a father and son who dare to aim for a higher place in the world' (Daily Mail)

Book Description:

Once there was a boy with an extraordinary gift... a magical story of an unusual child, with universal appeal.
