    Book details

Betty Barnes has been largely brought up by her older sister, Kate, in a small West Country village. Betty , however, dreams of the bright lights of Hollywood and becoming a movie star. Day-dreaming is one way for her to escape the realities of school life where she is creuelly bullied because her sister is living in sin with a married man and is rumoured to have used healing skills to help more than one local girl out of trouble.

Betty has also inherited psychic and healing gifts from her forebears. Like her sister, she also experiences memories of an earlier time when she was the local Wise Woman, guardian of a nearby mystical cave. However, when Betty gets into trouble at shcool, she feels that no one - not even her sister - understands her, and she runs away to the biggest city she can think of. London in the 1930s is hardly a hospitable place for a yound teenage firl to find her fortune. And Betty cannot turn her back on her magic forever . . .

From the author of The Wise Woman's Tale comes another tale of magic and heroism.

  • By Kindle Customer on 23 May 2008

    This book was like a mixture of Catherine Cookson and a woman of substance - lots of cliches - ie young girl runs away and becomes stripper - let down by Lord of the Manor etc. An attempt has been made to spice it up with the supernatural flashbacks - which are so awful I started skipping them. Badly writte, badly planned - bad book!

    I agree with the other reviewer that the book is not a Booker prize candidate, however, I enjoyed reading it. I liked the mix of past and present and the plot turns keep your interest. It would be a good beach read. I like to read a range of books and sometimes one needs lighter fare and this fulfils that criterion.
