A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison

Read by Nicky Diss

Three magical objects with the power to change their fate. 

Will they be enough to break the curse? Or will they lead the sisters even deeper into danger?

On the mysterious, marsh-bound isle of Crowstone, three sisters – Betty, Fliss and Charlie – live imprisoned by a curse that has trapped their family for generations.

But each of the sisters holds a secret, three magical objects passed down to them, each with a different enchanted property: an old carpet bag, a nest of dolls and a gilt-framed mirror. Together they hope to use their inheritance to defeat the curse upon them.

When they encounter a stranger, a prisoner, who claims to hold secret knowledge about the curse he’s willing to trade – for a price – the sisters must decide who to trust and discover whether the objects they keep hold the key to their freedom or a path to unimaginable peril.
