Publisher Description

Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children No Solicitations No Visitors No Quests

Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she's back. The things she's experienced... they change a person. The children under Miss West's care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

But Nancy's arrival marks a change at the Home. There's a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it's up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things.

No matter the cost.

She is a well known fixture of the fantasy community through her music and convention organization. She has 3 titles publishing in 2010.

Review

"A jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics, even as it carves its own precocious space between them." --NPR

"This is a gorgeous story: sometimes mean, sometimes angry, and always exciting" --Cory Doctorow for BoingBoing

"McGuire's lyrical prose makes this novella a rich experience." --Library Journal starred review

"This amazing fantasy pierces the shimmering veil of childhood imagination by reminding adult readers that their own doorways still exist deep in the champers of their all-too-human hearts." --Booklist starred review

"This gothic charmer is a love letter to anyone who's ever felt out of place." -- Publishers Weekly

"This gothic novel is ideal for fantasy fans who have longed for a world of their own, as well as readers looking for books with diverse casts." --Bookish

"Girl Interrupted meets Grimm's Fairy Tales. Let it in and it will touch your heart and open your mind." --Geek Syndicate

"The broken doors are open, and you should come and enter. Every Heart a Doorway feels like home." --B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
