the magic of unexpected affection, Nate Larson is a magician who surely can t escape Granddaughter Grace is a willing and cynical apprentice, running from her own many betrayals, and determined never to return to another foster home But will they let each other down in the end Will fate betray them Or is there a magical trick that can rescue them The magician s tales build fairytale joy from cruel

and character to make it work, and eagerly praying for a happy ending.Kortelisy itself is not what it seems either And the Russian dolls on the cover of this book illustrate the story perfectly
