In the back of a small shop in Ottawa, Sara finds a dusty leather pouch of mysterious artifacts. Shortly thereafter, a shadowy veil begins to draw back, revealing a far-off land of forests and magic, where the mythical is very real.
This unforgettable tale reaches back from the ancient shores of Wales to Sara's home in Ottawa -- from the world we know to a world just beyond our notice, where timeless evil and boundless good reside in its restless inhabitants.

"Charles de Lint is a folksinger as well as a writer and it is this voice we hear... both new and old, lyric, longing, touched by magic."
"He shows that, far from being mere escapism, contemporary fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time."
