"No matter your age, this witty, clever heartbreaking and heart-warming story will bring you sadness and joy – in that order!"
Eleanor Parkin takes her son and daughter to an elves and pixies party. Sticking around a while, she watches the children playing. And then she sees someone she once new. Her world goes to freeze-frame. It isn't him, but it might as well be. Identical in every way, she cannot believe her eyes.
How could this be? And why now, after so long?
Unable to look away, she watches him playing, and the memories come flooding back. Terrifying recollections of a time in her life she'd shut out of her mind for so many years, because it was just too awful to remember.
Eleanor is now the proud mum of two wonderful children; a confident, beautiful woman in total control of her life. But it hadn't always been that way.
Once upon a time it was all very, very different....
It's December 1992, and Ellie White lives a life of hell. She hates Christmas, and she hates the snow even more.
She has good reason. A year ago when she was just ten years old, her parents left to go shopping for presents. She never saw them again. Snow-covered winter roads caused a horrific accident, and they were gone forever.
But that isn't all that makes her life hell. Now she lives with her grandparents, and new things have come into her world.
Like a grandfather who, unable to cope with the loss of his only daughter, takes his belt to her at every opportunity. And girls at her school, who bully her and make her academic life a misery.
But then one day, in her darkest hour, an unexpected friend comes to call.
Too old to believe in elves, Ellie White is about to get her mind changed on that one!
