Ghost's Child

  • Sonya Hartnett



The Ghost's Child is an enchanting fable about the worth of life, and the power of love.

'The sky was pitch, and gashed by lightning; loutish waves rose and slumped heavily as mudslides.  At a moment when she was filled with desperation, Maddy opened her mouth and yelled for Feather.  And half-expected him to appear, because she wanted him to so much.'

Maddy yearns for her life to be mystifying, to be as magical as a fairy story.  And then one day, on the beach she meets the strangest young man she has ever seen.

The Ghost's Child is an enchanting fable about the worth of life, and the power of love.

' . . . simply stunning . . . elements of fairy tale, romance and coming-of-age realism combine to create a wondrous and truly unique tale.' Sydney Morning Herald
