If you like to read with your kiddies then this one is for you, Isla and I have really enjoyed reading this novel by Amy Wilson. It’s a magical story and it kind of reminds me of A Discovery of Witches, but obviously I didn’t tell Isla that! It’s a great book that is perfect for snuggling up with in Winter.
Snowglobe tells the story of daydreamer Clementine who has been trying to avoid her magic for a while but it has been getting stronger, and harder to ignore. Whilst at school, she loses control of it and realises she can escape it no longer.
When she is drawn to a mysterious house in the middle of town that was never there before, she is pulled in by the powerful sense of a mother she never knew. Once inside, she finds the place is full of hanging snowglobes, each one shaken, churned up and containing a trapped magician, each one lost in time.
So Clem ventures into the snowglobes in an attempt to release all the magicians from their glassy domes. In the process, she discovers her own powerful connection to the magic of these miniature worlds and, unknowingly, she unleashes a struggle for power that will put, not only her own family, but the future of magic itself in grave danger.
