Spindrift and the Orchid
|Ships in 4 to 7 working days|
A young girl finds herself entrenched in a dark mystery after the deaths of her parents in this "beautifully written" (School Library Journal) fantastical novel from the author of The House of Months and Years. When a man walks into her grandfather's curiosity shop and asks about a black orchid, Spindrift turns him away. She's never seen such a thing.
Until one night it appears. Spindrift, an orphan, has one keepsake from her parents...a clear glass orb. Except it's not quite clear anymore. She watches as a black orchid forms inside the crystal. Then the flower blooms into a towering woman in a dress of midnight silk and air, a woman with the power to grant wishes.
It's fun, at first.
But having everything you want is hard to hide. And soon, Spindrift--and her orchid--are being hunted.
Left running for her life, Spindrift must ask herself who her parents really were, and whether a wish is really just a curse in disguise.
