Summary
When her father dies and she is left in the care of her cruel stepmother, young Coriander Hobie fears what the future will bring, but when she suddenly discovers she has magical powers similar to those of her late mother, Coriander must learn to master them in order to gain the courage she needs to leave and go out in the world on her own.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Coriander Hobie, born in 1643, has a remarkable tale to tell—the tale of a childhood touched by unexplained bits of wonder, but too soon marked by tragedy. After her beloved mother dies and her father is forced to flee London, Coriander is left at the mercy of a stepmother full of cruelty. In the very nick of time, Coriander finds that she has somehow managed to transport herself to a land of fairies, and there she discovers what she has always suspected: that her mother was from a more magical world than grimy old London. And that she herself has inherited some of her mother’s mysterious abilities—abilities that she now has a desperate need to master.

Be prepared to be swept away by atmospheric writing that casts a lasting spell. Sally Gardner’s prose is exquisitely beautiful and her story and characters enthralling. She has written a rare and glorious book.
