Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated new standalone novel from rising star Natalie Lloyd!

There's a lot Emma wants to tell her mother about: her job leading cemetery walking tours, her new drum set, and the fact that the town's most famous ghost, the Morning Glory, seems to be trying to send Emma a message. But Emma can't share any of this, because Emma's mom is dead. Luckily there's a loophole.

The women in Emma's family all have a special destiny that comes to them in the form of a dream, and when they finally achieve this destiny, they're rewarded with a vision of all their extraordinary ancestors. Emma has spent her whole life waiting to discover her destiny and maybe see her mom again, even if just for a moment. But the dream never comes....

Just when she's about to give up, she learns that the Morning Glory is sending her messages, hints about a secret in Emma's family that could change everything. But can she solve the mystery in time to prove her destiny...and say a final farewell to the mother who was taken from her too soon?

Sweet and simple

When I first started listening I thought this was a children's book, but the more I heard, the more I liked it. With plenty of faith and hope, the heroine sets out to restore her family's fortunes and stay in her happy place. This is like an Enid Blyton book, just a good old fashioned tale with a little philosophy thrown in for good measure. A nice, easy listen.

Extraordinary story

This wonderful tale engulfed a young girl and family members dealing with lost and looking for treasures. Amazing how Narrator was able to weave the magic of the author's story.. Grief of children's lost, possible loss of a town's culture by a developer. Children looking for a treasure to save the town , the cafe and the cemetery. All of this through a child's point of view.
I recommend this book/ audible book for all ages. I am 66 year-old and I love it.

Too slow...

I enjoy these Natalie Lloyd stories, but the naration is just too slow. I had to listen to it at time and a half. On A Snicker of Magic, I thought it was the narator of that book, but
now I think it is an intentional choice by the author. Still a good read.
