A
warm-hearted, whimsical fantasy tale, with lashings of mystery,
magic, and mythology, and prose that 'flows like water.' Prepare to
fall in love with Esperance!


"A
fresh new fantasy, of an enchanting world." - Wendy Orr, author
of Nim's Island and Dragonfly Song


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
Ariane, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.




This
fresh, inventive tale is ideal for readers fifteen and under,
including pre-teens keen to step up to YA. A wholly unique take on
the genre, perfect for fans of Cornelia Funke or Rick Riordan.











Elizabeth
Foster read avidly as a child, but only discovered the joys of
writing some years ago, when reading to her own kids gave her the
urge to create a story of her own. Once she started writing, she
never looked back. She’s at her happiest when immersed in stories,
plotting new conflicts and adventures for her characters. Elizabeth
lives in Sydney, Australia, and Esme's Wish is her first novel.
