Kristin Bailey, author of Legacy of the Clockwork Key, will present her newest children’s middle grade novel, The Silver Gate, on Wednesday, January 18 at 6:30 pm at Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek.
The book is set years ago in the medieval era of lords and serfs. We meet 13-year-old Elric, who is a shepherd, and his 11-year-old sister, Wynn. Wynn had been born with developmental delays, and so the village folk determined she must be a changeling left by the evil fairies to cause havoc in their village.
According to their custom, the baby must be abandoned in the woods. However, her mother secretly leaves the village with the child, and she and Wynn live alone for eleven years far from the village in a hut that was filled with their laughter and song.
However, when the mother dies, Elric takes it upon himself to be Wynn’s protector and seek a suitable home for them far away from the unwelcoming village. As they go on this quest they encounter many difficulties and dangers, but Wynn always sees good in their circumstances, maybe because she is guided by a mysterious song taught to her by her mother that promises to lead her to a place beyond a silver gate where they will find acceptance, safely, and happiness.
