A unique blend of historical and fantasy fiction. The Lie Tree is one of a kind.
Faith and her family are moving to the island of Vane so that her father the Reverend Erasmus Sunderly can consult on a new archeological dig. To most people Faith seems shy and demure but inside she is burning with questions about the world and in particular science.
But when her father’s body is discovered Faith can not accept the ruling of suicide or accidental death, so she begins her own investigation and uncovers her father’s biggest secret; The Lie Tree.
The Tree feeds off lies and in return reveals secrets. Faith sees it as an opportunity to discover the secrets of her father’s death, but doesn’t realise she is putting herself into the same kind of danger.
A cross between a Victorian Murder mystery and a YA fantasy series. A truly brilliant piece of fiction which brings brand new ideas to the table.
