What is the book about?

Three magical objects with the power to change their fate. 

Will they be enough to break the curse? Or will they lead the sisters even deeper into danger?

On the mysterious, marsh-bound isle of Crowstone, three sisters – Betty, Fliss and Charlie – live imprisoned by a curse that has trapped their family for generations.

But each of the sisters holds a secret, three magical objects passed down to them, each with a different enchanted property: an old carpet bag, a nest of dolls and a gilt-framed mirror. Together they hope to use their inheritance to defeat the curse upon them.

When they encounter a stranger, a prisoner, who claims to hold secret knowledge about the curse he’s willing to trade – for a price – the sisters must decide who to trust and discover whether the objects they keep hold the key to their freedom or a path to unimaginable peril.


How I felt:

This is such a magical book that I absolutely fell in love with. It is one of those books that you will keep thinking of in real life, every now and then. Sometimes you almost believe that it was a real life experience filled with magic, adventure and great characters.

The sisters in this book have such an amazing bond and you instantly fall in love for the characters and want to protect them at all costs. The world that they are in is painted in such a mystical and beautiful way, that you wish you could explore with them too.

I would highly recommend this book to people of all ages, but I can see this being such a magical eye opener to children and wish I could’ve been blown away with this story as a child too!
