Jilly Coppercorn of Newford is back. With the help of a mentor and an anonymous benefactor, the talented young artist has overcome her troubled past and is enrolled in art school. The future is full of bright promise.

Although she still struggles, Jilly feels safe and loved by her newly formed family, including her loyal best friend Geordie, lovely fellow-classmate Sophie Etoile, and her staunch ally, the Angel of Grasso Street. Then, a tempting opportunity rides into town on an oversized motorcycle....

This original novel both celebrates and journeys beyond Newford, Charles de Lint’s popular mythical city of magic and mayhem.
