A novella.

Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in this stunning new novella from #1 Bestselling author Joanne Harris.

When you can find me an acre of land,
Every sage grows merry in time,
Between the ocean and the sand
Then will you be united again.

(Inspired by The Child Ballads 2 & 19)

So begins a beautiful and tragic quest as a heartbroken mother sets out to save her lost daughter, through the realms of the real, of dream, and even into the underworld itself.

But determination alone is not enough. For to save something precious, she must give up something precious, be it a song, a memory, or her freedom itself...

Beautifully illustrated by Bonnie Helen Hawkins, this is a stunning and original modern fairytale.
