Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen
Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen is a "magical, fantastical tale with a touch of humor -- brilliant McCreedy's novel is a great fun read for adults as well as children." (The Kindle Book Review) --
The average ten-year-old girl seldom travels far from home. She doesn't worry about being kidnapped by witches or imprisoned in medieval castles where children meet their unspeakable demise. She rarely gives thought to curses, potions and magic. She certainly is not risking life and limb to decipher ancient rites and lost treasures.... But Liberty Frye is about to discover she's not just an average girl. When a cryptic note from long-lost relatives arrives one day, the news it brings flips Libby's small-town existence upside down. Soon, she is lured to a foreign land where retired witches, talking bats and geriatric World War Two pilots await. It is up to Libby to unravel the sinister plot that brought her there in the first place, but in so doing, she'll uncover a shocking secret that will change her life forever ... if she survives the challenge.
