DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Based on the diaries Susan has kept since she was in her 20s, The Fairy Tale Girl is book one of a two part series. Together the books are an illustrated memoir, charmingly designed in Susan's style with her whimsical watercolors and personal photographs. It's an enchanting story of love and loss, mystery and magic that begins in a geranium-colored house in California, and ends up, like any good fairy tale, on the right side of the rabbit hole, in a small cottage in the woods on the New England Island of Martha's Vineyard. The Fairy Tale Girl humorously explores Susan's journey as an artist and as a girl/woman, from the 1950s through the 1980s. In the first book of the series we get a revealing view of Susan's early life as the oldest of eight children and the marriage she imagined would be forever; it's filled with inspiration, romance and discovery, and a leap into the unknown.

"Why do we read stories!" yawned the I-am-not-sleepy little girl. Her grandmother asked back, "Why do you think? The characters? The worlds they create? Maybe as a way to escape?" "Yes," she replied through eyes full of sand. "Yes, all of that. And ..," " ... and we see our Self in the tale," her grandmother said like she knew it well. "We seek ourselves in who we meet, and choose which bits to lose and keep." So begins bedtime, as a grandmother reads her granddaughter the story she most loves to tell. The story of a girl who leaves home to seek a bigger world, meets three allies along the way, and travels a road much different than what she expected. Sound familiar? Step into a story Morgan Llywelyn calls, "unlike any other yet hauntingly familiar. Both intimate and universal. Shimmering with magic to excite the senses."
