Waking up in the fireplace ashes of an unfamiliar and very broken castle, Sand discovers that nothing lives here, except the huge, dense thorny brambles that enclose the whole exterior, making it impossible to leave. He begins mending broken objects and soon discovers Perrotte, a girl his age and heir to the castle who has awakened from the dead. They become friends as they uncover secrets about the castle’s history and search for freedom. This enchanting fantasy is a wonderful story of friendship, magic, hope and love. Tweens and others will love it.
