***Award-winning fiction***

History, mystery, contemporary romance and magic...

An urban fairy tale for grown-ups.

18th-CENTURY ENGLAND

Author Edward Lillibridge faces trial for heresy after writing about the true beginnings of money.

MODERN AUSTRALIA

(Six months before the Global Financial Crisis rocks the economy)

The book is discovered by a woman named Rosetta: an idealist whose hope of starting a worldwide charity has been crushed by her sole-parent struggles. Lillibridge’s tale about a gold-obsessed empire (and the sprites they enslave: elfin clan dwellers whose currency of choice is kindness) enchants Rosetta and evokes a memory she cannot explain.

Rosetta’s website surrounding the reading group she’s begun with friends has inspired other Lillibridge book clubs. Her own Sydney group meets fortnightly at a vintage bungalow, the rental home she secured to escape a gruesome intruder.

In a wealthier part of Sydney, finance executive Matthew (polished, successful, admired) has been questioning his slave-to-the-dollar existence and his marriage to a tantrum-throwing shopaholic. And now he's questioning his sanity after finding he's been followed by an elf.

And then Matthew learns that the elf is portrayed in a book...

But who is the creepy intruder? A prowler from the suburb Rosetta and her teenaged daughter fled...or a traveller from the past, determined to suppress an ancient memory that will change the world forever?
