A Pinch of Magic #2: A Sprinkle of Sorcery

A missing sister, a secret island and an epic quest! The family curse that plagued the Widdershins sisters in their first story has been lifted. Finally Betty, Fliss and Charlie are free to leave their misty prison-isle of Crowstone. But when a mysterious girl arrives at the Poacher’s Pocket with a pocketful of hagstones, accompanied by a will-o’-the-wisp, it’s clear that a new adventure has landed on their doorstep! Then Charlie goes missing. Suddenly it’s up to Betty and Fliss to find her, journeying through misty marches of wisp catchers and to a secret island that doesn’t exist on any map…
