Fantasy Magical Realism | Young Adult
A magical, provocative tale of forbidden love and
one girl’s struggle for liberation
Hanna has never been outside her secluded community of
Clearhaven. She has never questioned why her father has four
wives or why she has fourteen brothers and sisters. And in
only one week, on her eighteenth birthday, Hanna will follow
tradition and become the fifth wife of a man more than twice
But just days before the wedding, Hanna meets an enigmatic
stranger who challenges her to question her fate and to
follow her own will. And when her mother reveals a
secret—one that could grant her the freedom she’s known only
in her dreams—Hanna is forced to decide whether she was
really meant for something greater than the claustrophobic
world of Clearhaven. But can she abandon her beloved younger
sister and the only home she’s ever known? Or is there
another option—one too fantastical to believe?
With lush, evocative prose, award-winning author Christopher
Meades takes readers on an emotional journey into a
fascinating, unknown world—and, along the way, brilliantly
illuminates complexities of faith, identity and how our
origins shape who we are.
