Waking from Dreams by A.B. Roberts
Deeply unhappy and haunted by tragic events of the past, 22 year old Isabel feels she is becoming a ghost. She knows that if she does not change her life she may disappear altogether. In desperation she secretly takes flight to her dead Grandmother’s derelict cottage, drawn there by unusual childhood memories. There, she discovers she has inherited her grandmother’s ability to sense supernatural beings and wield supernatural powers. She finds herself on an unexpected journey and discovers secrets than even she can scarcely believe . . . secrets that may have dire consequences for those she loves. As an intense summer storm assaults the small town, a storm that not all will survive, Isabel finally embraces a terrible truth she has been suppressing. Waking from Dreams is a faerie tale but is as much about the protagonist’s emotional journey as about myth and magic.
