Praise for The Lost Story

“If our sad, brutal, cynical, cowardly, unkind, exhausting world is too much for you, if you’d like to dream instead of a parallel world where love and loyalty and friendship are the magic that transforms the least of us into genuine heroes, then Meg Shaffer’s The Lost Story is the book you’ve been waiting for. And here’s the real magic. When you return from that enchanted place to the world you wanted to escape from, you’ll find it’s changed. Why? Because you have.”—Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prise-winning author of Empire Falls and the North Bath Trilogy

“Shaffer manages to capture the joys and magic of childhood innocence alongside the wisdom that comes with age. The taut mystery keeps the pages of this love letter to the fantasy genre flying. Readers will be transfixed.”Publishers Weekly, starred review
