Description
Franny Morrow is an odd child. She talks quietly to herself, forgets to eat, and disappears for hours at a time. And there are the fairies: King Tamarack, Queen Iris, and Princess Meadowsweet. Fairies only Franny can see. Friends who are all she has left to remind her of her dead father. When Franny is sent to live with her eccentric grandmother, she takes the fairies with her. Together, they search the old house for a lost treasure: a Kingfisher's feather, which they are certain will give Meadowsweet the gift of flight. But instead they discover a greater magic, one that Franny never expected to find. The Kingfisher's Gift is a rare and beautiful story of growing up, of discovering the truth and wonder of imagination, the importance of believing, and the healing power of letting go.
