The Magical Isles Trilogy is a warm-hearted contemporary fairy tale set on the Isles of Scilly, a small archipelago of islands lying off the far south-western tip of the U.K. mainland. Filled with wonder and adventure, it tells the story of two children and their aunt whose lives are forever altered by the whim of fate and the discovery of a realm beyond our own.
Caroline’s life of tranquil solitude is about to be interrupted by the arrival of her niece and nephew. Emily and Toby are sent to stay with her on the island of St. Mary’s while their parents attempt to find a solution to their marital problems. Little do any of them know that the stay will be prolonged.
In White Sands, the children make their way to the islands. Ten year old Toby is set on finding a way to escape and return home, whereas his younger sister makes the most of a stay which is only supposed to last a week. Strange whisperings are heard as Caroline tries to make the children feel welcome and unseen forces wait to see if the arrival of the siblings will lead to the fulfilment of an ancient prophecy.
Introducing us to the characters and the wonder of the islands, White Sands is filled with intrigue and laced with mystery as it lays the foundations of a story which leads us into the fairy realm in Volume Two, The Butterfly Riders.
A compendium edition of The Magical Isles Trilogy will be available from the 3rd April both in paperback and Kindle formats
