Summary

In a magical alternative reality Cordelia and other guild Makers put aside long-standing disputes to thwart a plot to bring war between England and France.

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. In Cordelia's world, Making - crafting items such as hats, cloaks, watches, boots and gloves from magical ingredients - is a rare and ancient skill, and only a few special Maker families remain.

When Cordelia's father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him. But Uncle Tiberius and Aunt Ariadne have no time to help the littlest Hatmaker, for an ancient rivalry between the Maker families is threatening to surface. Worse, someone seems to be using Maker magic to start a war.

It's up to Cordelia to find out who, and why . . .

NOTE : There is some spot-foiling on the front and rear covers and spine.

Book of the week

Magical realism/historical blend works very well, and this is a rip-roaring adventure of the first degree with a determined main character, spunky supporting cast, and sneaky villains. Great debut read, with a hint at more to come
