What you need to know before your trail

As one of the few witches in Britain, Mika Moon has lived her life by three rules: hide your magic, keep your head down, and stay away from other witches. An orphan raised by strangers from a young age, Mika is good at being alone, and she doesn’t mind it . . . mostly.

But then an unexpected message arrives, begging her to travel to the remote and mysterious Nowhere House to teach three young witches, and Mika jumps at the chance for a different life.

Nowhere House is nothing like she expects, and she’s quickly tangled up in the lives and secrets of its quirky, caring inhabitants . . . and Jamie, the handsome, prickly librarian who would do anything to protect his charges, and who sees Mika’s arrival as a threat. An irritatingly appealing threat.

As Mika finds her feet, the thought of belonging somewhere starts to feel like a real possibility. But magic isn’t the only danger in the world, and soon Mika will need to decide whether to risk everything to protect the found family she didn’t know she was looking for . . .

Travel Guide

Norfolk and the witches

The author says:

“When I think of the sea, it’s not tropical shores and palm trees I think of: it’s the North Sea, in all its ever-changing shades of grey and blue, crashing against the heathery dunes and rocks and pebbled beaches of Norfolk. Cold winds, sea salt and pale sand. It appeals to the melodramatic romantic in me, and it appeals to Mika, the heroine of the book, for the same reason.”
