Publisher Description

"A warm-hearted yet fierce fairy tale."―H. G. Parry

In the early 1900s, two sisters must navigate the magic and the dangers of the Fae in this enchanting and cozy historical fantasy about sisterhood and self-discovery.

There is no magic on Prospect Hill—or anywhere else, for that matter. But just on the other side of the veil is the world of the Fae. Generations ago, the first farmers on Prospect Hill learned to bargain small trades to make their lives a little easier—a bit of glass to find something lost, a cup of milk for better layers in the chicken coop.

Much of that old wisdom was lost as the riverboats gave way to the rail lines and the farmers took work at mills and factories. Alaine Fairborn’s family, however, was always superstitious, and she still hums the rhymes to find a lost shoe and to ensure dry weather on her sister’s wedding day.

When Delphine confides her new husband is not the man she thought he was, Alaine will stop at nothing to help her sister escape him. Small bargains buy them time, but a major one is needed. Yet, the price for true freedom may be more than they’re willing to pay.

Praise for The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill:

"Brimming with folk magic and delightfully sinister hidden worlds. Truly enchanting.”―Leslye Penelope

"A beautifully written tale of feminine power, sisterly devotion, and magic as old as the hills themselves.”―Louisa Morgan

Slightly Smiling Face“At times, this book would drag on a bit, especially when they would keep continuously making bargains. The last hundred pages is when it really started to pick up more with Del and Emily. Overall, I enjoyed the ending and am glad I read this book.”

Expressionless Face“The writing style of this book was beautiful. This book just wasn't for me. I didn't care for the characters because they all just frustrated me. The fae world seems more interesting. I'd like to know what happens to them as the human world grows.”
Beautifully writtenDidn't grab my attentionSlow plotUnengaging characters
Surprised Face with Open Mouth“At some points, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep going. Every time a new bargain was made, I was waiting for something to go wrong. But like a house of cards, each of the details felt carefully placed, until that tipping point where it all came crashing down. Ultimately, I was really happy with the way that it ended. Looking back, you could never have gotten to the end without all of the frustrating little things in the middle. It ended on the positive and hopeful note I was hoping for!”
