The Radiant Road (Paperback)
As of writing this, The Radiant Road is the most recent thing I’ve read, but I have a feeling it’s going to stick with me for a long time, just as her previous book, Summer & Bird, has. The story of a girl who sees the magic (or Strange with a capital “S”) in everyday life, Clare quickly falls into fantastical danger when she moves back to her birthplace in Ireland. The ability to love and create is at stake, and Catmull beautifully explores the themes of both. As someone who has very vivid dreams, I was particularly drawn to how much of the plot revolves around dreaming, and how influential it is. And did I mention, her way with language is superbly gorgeous.— Consuelo
A gorgeously woven tale of magic, friendship, and self-discovery set in a dream-like landscape filled with fairies.
After years of living in America, Clare Macleod and her father are returning to Ireland, where they ll inhabit the house Clare was born in a house built into a green hillside with a tree for a wall. For Clare, the house is not only full of memories of her mother, but also of a mysterious boy with raven-dark hair and dreamlike nights filled with stars and magic. Clare soon discovers that the boy is as real as the fairy-making magic, and that they re both in great danger from an ancient foe.
