The Pining

The Pining


Hungry. Pining. Ravenous.
Is this the state of Katy’s empty belly after another hard winter—or the starvation of her soul?

When Katy steps through a fairy ring to her father’s world, she hopes to leave behind the human sufferings of hunger and sorrow. Once in the realm of the Fay, Katy finds herself in a world of beauty and eternal merriment, where no one ages and she’s treated like a princess instead of a pariah. Yet under that exterior of perfection, lies a darker world that she’s only a taste away from realizing.

Will Katy be able to withstand the temptations of fairy food—and fairy love?

What does fruit gifted by fairies to mortals, the garden of Eden, and one step into a fairy ring all have in common? Read this fairy tale retelling of classic folklore to find out!
