Waterstones Says

Set in seventeenth-century Scotland at the height of the witch trials, The Forest of Moon and Sword is a lyrical children’s debut steeped in folklore and myth, as brave Art sets out to rescue her falsely accused mother.

When Art's mother is accused of witchcraft and captured, she is determined to get her back - at any cost. A lyrical adventure with folklore at its heart, for fans of The House With the Chicken Legs.

Twelve-year-old Art lives in a small village in Scotland. Her mother has always made potions that cure the sick, but now the townspeople say she is a witch. One cloudless night, Art's mother is arrested and taken to England.

Art mounts her horse, taking a sword, a tightrope, and a herbal recipe book, and begins a journey through wild forests, using nature's signs and symbols to guide her.

But will she spot the signs from the omens? Will she reach her mother, before it's too late?
