Waterstones Says

A former winner of our Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Thirteen Treasures, Michelle Harrison, is on spellbinding form with this tale of dark magic and the deepest of sisterly love. Told with gentle humour, inventive language and conveying important messages about identity, self-belief and the power of teamwork, it’s a story children will lose their hearts to.  

 

Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for February & March 2019

‘For as long as I can remember, stories about enchanted objects have fascinated me. From the comb which steals Gerda’s memories in The Snow Queen to the painting imprisoning the little girl in The Witches, the idea of everyday objects having hidden powers brings magic that little bit closer.’ – Michelle Harrison

Three sisters trapped by an ancient curse. 

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.
