Synopsis: The future can be rewritten.

Bea must wrestle her past to discover the witch’s secret and find her way home.

"A deft blending of historical, fantasy, contemporary and adoption fiction. I was genuinely transported."
Dr Rachel Connor, Novelist and Dramatist

"A heart-warming coming-of-age story, with an added sprinkling of magic."
Hannah Seat, Early Years Lecturer and Adoptee

My Review: This one I would say is more for the younger crowd vs. young adult. I did like it but in its writing it felt very simple.  The story was cute and beautiful but just not enough to keep me going.  I would say if you are looking for a book for a younger reader check this one out. But readers of young adult might find this one lacking.
