Too Many Magpies

Elizabeth Baines

A young mother married to a scientist fears for her children’s safety as the natural world around her becomes ever more uncertain. Until, that is, she meets a charismatic stranger who seems to offer a different kind of power. But is he a saviour or a frightening danger? And, as her life is overturned, what is happening to her children whom she vowed to keep safe? Why is her son Danny now acting so strangely? In prose that spins its own spell she exposes our hidden desires and the scientific and magical modes of thinking which have got us to where we are now. (Amazon)
