Author’s Summary

When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver sets out to search for her missing mother, Ariane, she is transported to the alternate realm of Aeolia: a world enchanted by the gods, and steeped with myth and magic. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.

With themes of friendship, loyalty, and loss, Esme’s Wish is a whimsical tale for younger teens, or anyone who enjoys being swept into another world.

Excerpt:

Lillian handed back the compendium. The illustration on the front cover depicted a glistening bead of water, suspended in the air. Within it spun islands, people and fantastical creatures.

‘That’s from the legend of Aeolia’s creation,’ said Lillian running her hand over the cover. ‘Everything in our world – Esperance, the islands, the magic – is said to have flowed from one enchanted drop of water.’
