Product description

“I am Coriander Hobie. I was born in the year of Our Lord 1643… That was before I knew this world had such evil in it, and that my fate was to be locked up in a chest and left to die.”

The daughter of a silk merchant in Old London, Coriander’s idyllic childhood ends when her mother dies. She is left in the care of her evil stepmother and a corrupt priest, who lock her away in a chest, willing her to die. Instead, Coriander emerges into the fairy world from which her mother came – a place where time has no meaning. When she returns, she has been charged with a task that will transform her life… This beguiling historical fantasy is full of enchantments: a pair of silver shoes, a fairy shadow, a prince who is transformed into a fox. With its brilliant imagining of historical London and the clash of the Royalists and Puritans, it is a book that no reader will ever forget.

Winner of the Smarties Gold Award.
