'When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother, Ariane – so why can’t she?

But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.'

I loved this book.

I will admit it took me a few chapters to get into this book but once I was in I was hooked.

I loved the world that Elizabeth Foster created in this book. The magic and mystery that oozed from every page was truly captivating.

The characters in this book were really relatable and grounded, which surprised me given the magical elements of this book. I loved the relationship and dialog between them and the way in which they developed both individually and as a group throughout the story.

The story itself was wonderful. The pacing was perfect and you learned what you need to know as the story progressed, there weren't any major information dumps on the reader. The plot flowed easily and took the reader on its journey.

Elizabeth Foster's writing was absolutly beautiful. It had a real lyrical quality to it that was perfectly displayed in this book.

I honestly loved this book and I am so excited that it is a part of a series. I cant wait to get my hands on the next book.

Esme's Wish by Elizabeth Foster is a truly wonderful story that will fill you with magic and wonder.
