Review

Captivating. This colorful, well-constructed tale is as much detective story as fantasy and deftly blends both elements into a page-turning plot that hooks the reader in. The world’s lushly described architecture, mythology, sirens, and dragons create the allure of being whisked away into a great adventure. (Sarah Scheele for Readers’ Favorite)

Product Description

A warm-hearted, whimsical fantasy tale, with lashings of mystery, magic, and mythology, and prose that 'flows like water.' Prepare to fall in love with Esperance! 
  
"A fresh new fantasy, of an enchanting world." - Wendy Orr, New York Times best selling author of Nim's Island.
  
When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father's wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme's mother, Ariane - so why can't she? 
 
But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother's disappearance - that 'lost at sea' is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know. 
 
After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother's steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane's double life. But the more Esme discovers about Ariane, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all. 
 
This fresh, inventive tale, the first in an MG-to-YA series, is suited to readers aged 10 years and over. 
  
Esme's Wish recently won first place in the fantasy category of the U.S. 2018 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards, which recognises excellence in children's literature.
