Series: Esme #1

This was her last chance.
Her hand twisted high in the air.
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 – 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 her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.
Esme's Wish is the first book in the Esme series.
Esme’s Wish is Elizabeth Foster’s debut novel, and it has been described as appealing to fans of Tamora Pierce and other friendship-based fantasies such as Lynette Noni’s Medoran Chronicles.
I’m very pleased to be able to give away two finished copies of the book to residents of Australia. You can enter using the Rafflecopter form below.
Esme’s Wish is due out in Australia on October 30, so keep your eyes open. Just look at that beautiful cover! And she definitely had me at the words “swept into an enchanted world”, wouldn’t you agree?
About the Author
Elizabeth Foster read avidly as a child, but only discovered the joys of writing some years ago, when reading to her own kids reminded her of how much she missed getting lost in other worlds. Elizabeth lives in Sydney, where she can be found scribbling in cafés, indulging her love of both words and coffee.
