Orfeia / Joanne M. Harris

A reimagining of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, this modern fairytale features a mother struggling to come to terms with the death of her daughter. While working through her grief, she unexpectedly falls into the fairy realm, embarking on a difficult and dangerous mission to return her daughter to the world of the living. But the demands of the fairy folk are steep, and the price she must pay endangers not only her daughter’s hopes for freedom, but also her own.

Interspersed with stunning illustrations by Bonnie Helen Hawkins, Orfeia is a richly evocative and deeply emotional piece of folklore for the modern age. Available in Fiction.
