Brigit was left on the steps of the orphanage as a baby with a handmade book called "Fairytale" and a pendant. The nuns told her she was a twin but she could never find proof of a sister. At age nine she ends up living in the streets and eventually earns desparately needed cash but using her amazing ability (magical?) to forge great works of art. She escapes to the straight life when a visitor from the past threatens her into forging a painting owned by Adam. Turns out the painting was painted by the twin and is of a glen in the fairytale world. Adam had stubbled "across" as a child and knows the meaning of the picture. It was in the book and so Brigit knows what it means. The book revolves around the growing romanced between the two as they struggle with both evil humans and their own confusion about the meaning of the painting. It's all pretty farfetched but the book is certainly a pleasant enough read. Not a keeper for me though - no tears or belly laughs.
