Six years ago in wartime London, two sisters, Evie and Philippa, were transported to a magical realm where they became woodland queens. Now, returned to the real world after years in the Woodlands, they must come to terms with their more ordinary lives.

For Evie, it's unbearable. A patchwork girl, pieced together from pain and longing, she dreams of the whispering trees and a daisy-chain crown.

For Philippa, it's a relief, especially now she's met Jack. But all it takes are four words to shatter her new-found peace: Your sister is missing.

As the weeks unfold, Philippa must discover if Evie crossed safely between worlds or if the light was too bright - and she fell.

  • This haunting, beautiful YA debut explores the aftermath of a fantasy adventure - and how two sisters must readjust to an ordinary world when they are anything but.
  • A mesmerising story of heartache, sisterhood and longing, written in a stunning dual narrative.
  • Shades of The Chronicles of Narniaand The Magicians.
