Sometimes fairy tales do come true...
As a single mother of two, Faye O’Neill has no time for fairy tales. She’s not even certain she believes in luck. Practical, smart and desperate to escape a shadowy past, Faye takes a job at a top advertising firm in London where she hopes she and her children can find a fresh start. When she finds the beautiful two-story flat for rent in a stately old Victorian complete with a neglected but tumbling English garden, she can scarcely believe her good fortune. But it’s not long before Faye realizes everything in the old home may be as peaceful as it seems.
A strange light begins to appear in her children’s rooms at night, and then there’s the reclusive elderly tenant, Crazy Wendy, her landlady warned her to steer clear of, the woman who spends her evenings spying on Faye’s children from her garret-room window. The woman who believes she is Peter Pan's Wendy. To make matters worse, Faye, who has sworn off men, discovers her downstairs neighbor Jack is a disturbingly handsome professor with a talent for charming women and children alike. Before she knows it, Faye has embarked upon a whole new adventure into a world where anything might be possible, where broken hearts can be healed by a kiss, and where Neverland may not be a place of fables, but a forgotten land one can still find if they are only brave enough to follow the second star to the right.

They asked me what I was reading and when I said a book about Peter Pan, that's how we got started. So, we will be on Amzon shopping for more books for their ages. The each get to pick out a book.
Faye O’Neil and her children Tom and Maddie move to a flat in London. Tom has suffered emotionally and psychologically from an accident. His sister Maddie is very cautious and looks after her brother. She is there to start a new job. This flat is special in many ways because the children begin to have hope through the little lights they see in the evening. They also are obsessed with Wendy Darling Forester who shares great stories of Peter Pan. Faye is not sure about encouraging the imagination of her children. Will her son Tom’s struggles change her mind? Will he succeed in encouraging Faye’s imagination?
I unfortunately did not love this novel. I very much enjoy Mary Alice’s writing but this novel struck me as being different than what she usually publishes. Don’t get me wrong I love the idea surrounding the idea of Peter Pan. I just struggled in keeping my interest in the story.
I thought the setting was great! The Flat is described as the Darling home which Wendy inherited. Her daughter later transforms into apartments. This house includes a description of the garden. This garden was influenced by Wendy’s experience with Peter Pan.
I was also able to share the emotional up and down of the characters.
Don’t miss her next novel coming out soon!
Being naive and gullible is how Faye ended up married to her ex-husband to begin with, so indulging the elderly woman in her delusion risks destroying all her efforts to raise her children to be firmly rooted in reality, which included debunking the myths of Santa and the Easter Bunny early on. But sometimes, you just have to believe...
This is a charming update on what happened to Wendy after she returned from Neverland. Including several elements from Barrie's classic tale, this author beautifully blends reality and magic in a heartwarming way.
