In this exceptionally well-crafted tale, Coriander tells the story of her childhood in seventeenth-century London -- and of her discovery that she has inherited magical powers from her mother, who was a fairy princess.
But her mother's sudden death brings on a dark time for Coriander. And after mourning her beloved mother and dealing with the disappearance of her father and the wrath of her evil stepmother, Coriander finds herself locked in a chest with no hope of escape and no will to survive. But when a bright light beckons to her, it is then that Coriander's journey truly begins.
Beautifully written, this magical and luminous story is destined to become a children's classic.
