Genre: Young Adult/ Fantasy
When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father's wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme's mother, Ariane--so why can't she?
But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother's disappearance--that 'lost at sea' is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.
After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. 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.
Meet the Author
Elizabeth Foster read avidly as a child, but only discovered the joys of writing some years ago, when reading to her own children reminded her how much she missed getting lost in other worlds. Once she started writing, she never looked back. Elizabeth lives in Sydney, Australia, where she is hard at work on the third and last novel in the Esme series. Much of her inspiration comes from nature, especially the ocean.
Her first novel, Esme’s Wish, has been enjoyed by readers around the world, and was the recipient of a Purple Dragonfly award, which recognises excellence in children's literature. A fantasy tale full of myth, mystery and magic, Esme's Wish charts the adventures of fifteen-year-old Esme Silver as she searches for her missing mother.
Esme's Gift, the sequel to Esme's Wish, recently won an IPPY award for best fantasy. You can learn more about Elizabeth at www.elizabethfoster.com.au
