In Miller's (Copyright 2023 Library Journal.
Rule) latest, the worldbuilding and historical folklore is richly detailed, while the ties of fairy and family create an intriguing plot. Sisters Alaine and Delphine know their family's history on Prospect Hillâone told through the generations as having come to them through the power of the Fae. Even as the land has changed, with farms slowly shrinking and rail lines and mills taking priority, their family farm and orchards survive and thrive, and if bits of ribbon and glass offerings disappear the next day, who is to say why? When Delphine's new husband is not the man she expected him to be, Alaine is sure that she can bargain, yet small prizes only yield small gains. A major bargain is the only thing that will create the change the sisters need, but the price is one that neither had expected to pay. VERDICTA bold story of sisterhood, societal expectations, and the lengths women may be willing to travel for love and freedom. Fans of Alix E. Harrow's The Once and Future Witcheswill find this fierce and folkloric tale a terrific read. âKristi Chadwick
