We are excited to partner up with Penguin as a #PRHPartner in this Blog Tour for SPELLBOOK of the LOST and FOUND by Moïra Fowley-Doyle. We enjoyed The Accident Season and could not wait to delve into this mysterious book where one looses things….at first small and infrequent and then more, much more.
So, we devised some bookish spells to help those that are needing to find those lost things that will make them whole again. Mayhaps a spell or two will help you too.
for lost items
“Something I have lost I need to find; By the power of three, this spell I bind.”
“By the powers of Moon, Sun, Earth,Air, Fire and Sea
what once was lost return to me.”
“Keeper of what disappears,
Please hear me now and open your ears.
Find for me what I now seek,
By Earth, Wind, Fire and Sea.”
One stormy Irish summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hairclips and jewelry, but soon it’s clear that Rose has lost something much bigger, something she won’t talk about, and Olive thinks her best friend is slipping away.
Then seductive diary pages written by a girl named Laurel begin to appear all over town. And Olive meets three mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel, and her twin brother, Rowan, secretly squatting in an abandoned housing estate. The trio are wild and alluring, but they seem lost too—and like Rose, they’re holding tight to painful secrets.
When they discover the spellbook, it changes everything. Damp, tattered and ancient, it’s full of hand-inked charms to conjure back things that have been lost. And it just might be their chance to find what they each need to set everything back to rights.
Unless it’s leading them toward things that were never meant to be found…
Moïra Fowley-Doyle is half-French, half-Irish and lives in Dublin with her husband, their young daughters, and their old cat. Moïra’s French half likes red wine and dark books in which everybody dies. Her Irish half likes tea and happy endings. Moïra started a PhD on vampires in young adult fiction before concentrating on writing young adult fiction with no vampires in it whatsoever. She wrote her first novel at the age of eight, when she was told that if she wrote a story about spiders she wouldn’t be afraid of them anymore. Moïra is still afraid of spiders, but has never stopped writing stories. She is the author of The Accident Season and Spellbook of the Lost and Found.
