Did I hear someone say Faerie? 💃 But no really, faerie books always get me excited & so did reading a blurb for Rowenna Miller’s The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill written by HG Parry.
This is a fantasy celebrating family—sisterhood, especially—& the bravery we’re capable of when we want to protect someone we love (also the shortsightedness & foolishness and greed we can be capable of for various other motivations but I’m focusing on the positive ).
Alaine & Delphine are sisters of Prospect Hill who have grown up hearing stories of how faeries have helped them in exchange for goods & words they leave for them, a process called bargaining.
But Delphine is leaving the farm & Alaine feels the weight of it all crumbling & she reaches out to the faeries in ways she shouldn’t.
Though this story feels a bit long to me, it’s also winning & unsettling with rich imagery. It took me a while to get really interested in what was happening but then things picked up & I was excited to see where the pages went next.
