A gorgeously woven tale of magic, friendship, and self-discovery set in a dream-like landscape filled with fairies.
 
After years of living in America, Clare Macleod and her father are returning to Ireland, where they’ll inhabit the house Clare was born in—a house built into a green hillside with a tree for a wall. For Clare, the house is not only full of memories of her mother, but also of a mysterious boy with raven-dark hair and dreamlike nights filled with stars and magic. Clare soon discovers that the boy is as real as the fairy-making magic, and that they’re both in great danger from an ancient foe.


★ "A stunningly atmospheric, gorgeously complicated dream of a book."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ "An unforgettable tale . . . that contains all the darkness and light of A Midsummer Night's Dream."—School Library Journal, starred review
