The First Book of Stonewylde.

SYNOPSIS:   “Sylvie is dying in a hospital bed while her mother and doctors watch her life slipping away.

But one of them offers her a chance. There’s an alternative community – Stonewylde – hidden in a remote corner of Dorset, and if Sylvie can visit then the clean air and green lifestyle might restore her. Or give her some measure of peace before she dies. It’s a chance, and when Sylvie and her mother take it they find themselves in a haven of beauty and tranquillity.

But it’s not all idyllic. As her forbidden friendship with a secretive Village boy grows Sylvie glimpses the truth behind the paradise she’s entered. All is not quite as it seems at Stonewylde.”

What secret lies at the heart of this magical place? And why was the Magus so keen to bring her here?”
