Glassheart

By Katharine Orton

An enchanting magical adventure set in the wild moors of Dartmoor – the second middle-grade novel from the bestselling Katharine Orton.

Through the glass, the magic is waiting... Nona and her uncle travel everywhere together, replacing stained-glass windows in war-torn buildings. When a mysterious commission takes them to the lonely moors of Dartmoor, Nona discovers a wild and powerful magic which threatens everything. Can Nona protect those she loves – even if it means fighting darkness itself? A beautifully imaginative and rich adventure about determination, courage and the power of love, set in the aftermath of World War Two. Perfect for fans of Abi Elphinstone, Sophie Anderson and Catherine Doyle.

  • "This is fantasy at its best." The Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year
  • Set in the lonely wilds of Dartmoor after WW2, this is atmospheric fantasy at its very best, exploring a moment of British history not often told, and weaving it with magic, folklore and mystery.
  • With a gorgeous cover design by Sandra Dieckmann, illustrator of Nevertell, ensuring Katharine's second book is just as irresistible!
