Book Excerpt

Griselda whisked herself up the rickety stairs to the loft that hadn’t been used since Marigold had visited last. She coughed and waved her hands through the particles of dust that formed a dense smoke screen between the door and the window. In an instant the fog lifted. Griselda gave a grimace at the pile of junk; old potion bottles, cauldrons and chipped potted plants that formed their very own mountain next to the press.
