Description

When you are ready, seek, and you shall find. It is your gift.



Gwen Harper left Pendleford thirteen years ago and hasn't looked back. Until an inheritance throws her into the mystical world she thought she'd escaped. Confronted with her great-aunt's legacy Gwen must finally face up to her past.


The magic she has long tried to suppress is back with a vengeance but gift or burden, for Gwen, it always spells trouble. She has to stay - she has nowhere else to go - but how can she find her place in the town that drove her out after branding her a witch...?


Praise for Sarah Painter
"Sarah Painter is a talented new writer, and her debut is a charming, romantic and intriguing story, with a little touch of magic. It had me enchanted." - Clodagh Murphy


'This really was a fantastic debut novel... The language was also simple but elegant and meant that the story flowed seamlessly. I honestly could not put it down.' - Laura's Little Book Blog


'The plot had great twists and turns and when I thought I had the story figured out, the story would go in a different direction and surprise me. I didn't want to put it down and the further I got into the book, the harder it was to stop reading... A wonderful debut novel and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.' - Novel Kicks


'I thoroughly enjoyed The Secret of Ghosts. It was just as magical and just as enjoyable as The Language of Spells and I am soooooo glad Sarah Painter decided to go back to Pendleford. ... I really do love magical fiction and I think Sarah Painter is one of the best at giving you a realistic look at magic and all that comes with it.' - Chick Lit Reviews on The Secrets of Ghosts
