The Fairies of Turtle Creek
(Magical realism for readers age 9 and up. Fantasy and history all mixed together, with a cross-generational relationship between an eccentric grandmother and a skeptical granddaughter.)  Thirteen-year-old Claire has deep concerns about her brother who is away fighting in the Iraq war.
