Laurel's Miracle was written for the young...but I say it is ALSO for those of us who enjoy a good story that will remind us of how wonderful it can be to be young at heart.. Magic, sacrifice, soul abiding love, loyalty, and the core of the earth we all walk upon draw us into this story and hold us tightly as the story unfolds before our questing eyes. Laurel is on a journey to find a way to save her mother dying from cancer...she's joined by her three new friends and creatures you heard about in tales of ancient myth and legends. No matter how old we get, we all need magic in our lives...and this book expertly written by Ms. Bell delivers magic, wonder, and all the best emotions we can find in the deepest places in our hearts and souls. I highly recommend this for the young and the young at heart. you won't be disappointed...AND this is JUST the beginning of Ms. Bell's Magical tales.

With a myriad of myths, legends and magic, this story of a young girl’s quest to save her mother’s life, is fresh, original, and was a joy to read! Finding herself in a new and unfamiliar place (Cornwall, UK), Laurel must not only solve a series of riddles steeped in Cornish legend, but she must find the courage to face an ancient magic that is quite beyond her imagination. Laurel quickly bonds with an unlikely trio, Coll, Aisling and Gort, and together they work hard to unravel the mystifying clues set before them, while meeting some most interesting characters along the way. Adding a deeper layer to this tale, is the modern day difficulties each of foursome face within their own daily lives, including prejudice, abuse, and bullies. Laurel and her friends slowly discover their inner strengths which will ultimately transcend them beyond each of their fears. Once again Ms. Bell has rendered the imagery of her setting beautifully, and furthermore, I was literally spellbound by the smashing climax and finish! Bravo!
