Sadie Sugarspear and the Weeping Willow, The Terrible Stream, and Alasdair Astigan: Novellas 1-3 by Nicole Arlyn

The first three Sugarspear Chronicles novellas, now available in one ebook! In a small town called Muddlewoods, young Sadie Sugarspear endures intolerable cruelty at the hands of her brutal stepfather. Sadie finds solace in the one thing her real father, Sam Sugarspear, left behind: a book about an imaginary land, ruled by a king who grants wishes. One day, when her stepfather’s cruelty reaches unimaginable depths, Sadie runs away and hides inside a crevice in her beloved willow tree. To her surprise, the tree opens up, sending Sadie falling down into the abyss, into a land she’s only ever read about—where she must begin a long, terrifying, and heartbreaking journey home. On her way, Sadie encounters a mysterious boy named Joseph, a sinister character named Gismania Twylight, and the alluring and passionate Alasdair Astigan. But, she is also terrified to learn that she is also being hunted by unnumbered and unknown forces from kingdoms all around... Will Sadie give up and return home to Muddlewoods? Or, will she risk everything to find the legendary king who can make her wishes come true?

Praise for the Sugarspear Chronicles: “This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. It will challenge you...But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” —A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series
