Summary

Summary

When folk musician Janey Little finds a mysterious manuscript in an old trunk in her grandfather’s cottage, she is swept into a dangerous realm both strange and familiar. But true magic lurks within the pages of The Little Country, drawing genuine danger from across the oceans into Janey’s life, impelling her—armed only with her music—toward a terrifying confrontation.

Come walk the mist-draped hills of Cornwall, come walk the ancient standing stones. Listen to the fiddles, and the wind, and the sea. Come step with Janey Little into the pages of … The Little Country.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A keeper, intricate and entertaining…I read it straight through in one sitting!” Robert Jordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Charles de Lint’s masterwork, The Little Country, must stand as the finest novel of fantasy in 1990. Charles de Lint is the best of the post-King fantasists, the one with the clearest vision of the possibilities of magic in a modern setting…This book sings.” Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
“[De Lint] imbues his story with an unusual, authentic atmosphere. In a genre of elaborately mapped Neverlands, de Lint sets his tale in our contemporary world and makes it not less magical. And in a genre plagued by automatons…de Lint develops complex characters and original plots.” Los Angeles Times
“The author…asserts his unique ability to weave together a seamless pattern of magic and realism as this story within a story unfolds with elusive grace. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“De Lint sets his tale in our contemporary world and makes it not less magical…[with] complex characters and original plots.” Los Angeles Times
