ON SALE: DEC 4TH 2018
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Thirteenth Tale comes a richly imagined, gripping and glorious tapestry of a book that combines folklore and science, magic and myth.
The neighborhood bar has always been the image of frivolity, but when a haggard man carrying the seemingly lifeless body of a young girl, the neighbors come to the rescue. At first, it looks like it's too late for the girl, but in the middle of the night, she comes back to life, and no one can quite figure out why. Now, three families are positive that the girl belongs to them, and as each family makes their case, their mysteries and secrets begin to unravel. In this vividly and magically atmospheric novel that brings to mind authors like Audrey Niffenegger and Kate Moron, Setterfield will transport you through worlds both real and imagined to the triumphant conclusion whose depths will continue to give up their treasures long after the last page is turned.
