Description

What is it about fairies that enchants us so? Where do these elusive beings live, and what do they do? Why is it some see fairies and others do not? What's the truth about glamour? And why, when they promise your dreams will come true, do fairies grant three wishes?

Maggie Hamilton has spent a decade exploring the rich world of the fairy. Having talked with people from all walks of life, she captures their astonishing, sometimes poignant encounters with fairies here. Read about the fairies found in people's homes and gardens, deep in nature, and in city streets and parks.

On this mesmerising journey deep into this achingly beautiful otherworld, you'll discover the many exquisite possibilities present at dawn and dusk, and why the fairy kingdom has an ecology all of its own. Learn about the notes plants sound, and why some indigenous peoples no longer need to pick a plant to access its healing properties. Find out how to work with fairies to heal the earth and your own bruised spirit, and how this quest can transform you inside and out.

For those with their own fairy stories to tell, and fairy lovers everywhere.

Review quote

'Maggie Hamilton guides us, with an expert's touch, into the rich and remarkably complex world of fairies. Her own stories, and those of many others who have come forward to share their experiences of these tiny beings, makes for fascinating reading. As if I was being guided through a beautiful meditation, the book opened my eyes and heart to the other lives that are all around us if only we take the time to look. Once you've read Inside the Life of Fairies, you'll never see the world in quite the same way again!'
--Candida Baker MA, President Equus Alliance, Australia 'This beautifully written book took my right back to the halcyon days of my childhood in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, when summer was endless, and time stood still. Maggie reawakens the magic and wonder of nature and transported me through true stories of people who see through the mists of reality, into those time-honoured spaces where fairies and the little people truly exist in their own world, creating harmony and magic. She has awakened the part of me that once again appreciates the wonder of natural spaces, where the fairies work so hard to nurture, the scent of the blossom so carefully tended by them, and the sweet song of the blackbird as I walk through the woods and touch the warm, soft bark of the trees, and my heart bursts with love. This is an incredibly uplifting book, for both young and old, reminding us that wherever we may be, the fairies are always amongst us bringing their sparkles and luminous experiences just waiting to touch our hearts and minds.'
--Heather Hoyland, spiritual medium, Yorkshire, England 'This enchanting book took me on a wonderful journey into the life of fairies. I must say that since reading it, not a day has gone by without me having a new, inspiring thought about it. I love trees so 'The Miracle of Trees' chapter certainly made me think quite differently about the trees around me and their tiny inhabit-ants. I often pick up pebbles and stones just to 'feel' them, so to read 'rocks and stones sit silently among us, preciously guarding their memories of people and events long gone' really resonated with me. A truly magical and compelling read.'
--Wendy Nute, Halwyn Holistics, Snell's Beach, New Zealand. 'If your mind is open to explore the world of Faeries this book offers many aspects of the unknown. Possibly opening your mind and heart to past unexplained encounters and put you on the path to invite the Faeries into your future life.'
--Lynda Collier, Collier's Crystals and Gifts, Blue Mountains, Australia
