A tale of unbelievable discovery that will help you reconnect with your inner child, and what better time than Christmas? Travel back to a time where you believed in the supernatural and days were filled with joy and wonder. In a modern world full of war, greedy politicians, and immoral and selfish companies, this book distracts and enlightens. It is a much needed reminder that you need to enjoy life. Let the stresses of your day to day life melt away and fall into the warm, comforting and magical embrace of Denise's writing. Don't underestimate the importance of diversion. We all have busy lives, but it is vital for our mental, emotional and physical health to enjoy life. We explore a magical world full of laughter and where anything is possible. Full of adorable moments!
Alicia leaves home with the promise she'll visit often and not become a stranger. But sadly, the years fly by and before she knows it, her parents and sister have passed on. Struck by nostalgia she journeys home to see that her sister Stephanie has a surprise waiting for her. Alicia uncovers a diary that exposes Steph's secret spellbinding life that claims to support the existence of faeries. Otherwise referred to as humanoids of small stature or wee folk in Welsh mythology.
You'll smile endlessly at the cuteness, humour, and cheeky tendencies of these beings. The book is full of fluttering faeries that warm your heart and put a great big grin on your face. The naïvete of the critters is enthralling. The bond between Steph and a faerie princess is captivating and moving. The characters, along with this superb work of fiction, will never be forgotten. 'The Nestries' will stay with you like fond childhood memories.
But no great story is complete without some form of conflict. Which comes into play when Stephanie makes a grave mistake. This is a book unlike any other, with new and unusual terminology used among the faeries. Emotion only continues to intensify with each chapter as we become deeply connected to the characters. This book should definitely be on your Christmas list. The faerie Rani reminded me of a cross between Tinkerbell and Thumbelina. Mischievous, but kind-hearted and loyal.
The setting plays a great part in making the journey magical. The clearing among the green, trees, nice house, home of the faeries and so on. Denise does a wonderful job of making the reader experience the world from the fair folk's point of view. Everything small and surreal, but undeniably absorbing and thought-provoking. A fantastic new take on folklore.
As the story unfolds, there are countless inventive mispronunciations and mistaken meanings that crop up. Customs of the “walkers” (humans) seem peculiar to the faeries and vice versa. Frye has a gloriously imaginative way of developing funny and sometimes catastrophic results from the interaction of the two worlds.
But Frye’s ability is not only limited to the telling of a fairytale. Throughout the story, she weaves current themes including those regarding cultural acceptance and appreciation of our planet.
The book is a delight to read. Also, the illustrations of Sean P. Cox are exquisite.
