Girl in the Glass (The Healer's Shadow)

By Zoe Brooks

Magical realism, Fantasy, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


In this Cinderella story for adults there is no fairy godmother and no handsome prince, just a girl of spirit and her strange companion. Orphaned at the age of ten in circumstances that she refuses to explain, Anya grows up trapped in the house of her abusive aunt where she and Eva, her Shadow, are treated as slaves. As her aunt tries to break her and the punishments become increasingly life-threatening, Anya struggles to find affection and self-esteem. When the inevitable showdown arrives, where will Anya find the strength to survive and escape? And if she does escape, what then? An arduous walk across an unforgiving desert to a city where an even worse danger lies. "Girl in the Glass" is the first book in "The Healer's Shadow" trilogy.



When Zoe was a child, her inventor father told her to look at things differently and her mother showed her how to see witches and dragons in tree roots and clouds. She's been applying these lessons ever since. After many years working with disadvantaged communities in London and Oxford Zoe now spends half her life in a partly restored old farmhouse in the Czech Republic, where she writes all her novels and poetry. Zoe likes and writes books where realism and fantasy meet and has a blog dedicated to reviewing magic realism. Zoe also produces a newspaper dedicated to the best online articles on women's fiction. Zoe's poetry book Fool's Paradise won the EPIC (Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition) award for best poetry book for 2013.
