About the Book
Tilby, Lincolnshire, 1811. Miss Sophia Landon is the daughter of an impoverished clergyman. Her father’s health is failing fast, but who wants to marry a woman without birth, beauty or wealth? Her prospects are limited indeed - until her friendship with the town’s fae denizens earns her passage to the otherworldly realm of Aylfenhame. Could her fate truly lie beyond the shores of England?
There she meets Aubranael, a young man with a warm heart and a ruined face. In Sophy he sees the answer to his loneliness, but how can a disfigured Ayliri hope to win her heart? When a mysterious witch offers him the temporary gift of beauty, he eagerly accepts: and so begins an adventure that could change his life, and Sophy’s, forever.
About the Author
Originally from England, Charlotte now in the heart of windmill country in the Netherlands. She has a degree in Heritage, and her interests include books, crafts, cooking and social history. She likes to write whimsical, colourful tales full of character and humour.
In a world where magic is at play, Charlotte E. English has written a story that will captivate reader’s imaginations from page one. Told from the point of view of Mister Balligumph, a troll guarding a bridge that separates the human world from the magical one, this novel is full of humans and magical creatures alike. It is a story of adventure, magic, and most of all true love. Join Miss Sophia in a magical and mystical world of wonder and awe. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy regency fiction, as well as fantasy.
