Winner of the 2001 Aurora Award for Best Long Form Work in English!

In this reworking of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, the magical worlds of Saami shamanism and the Kalevala coexist with the polite Victorian society of nineteenth-century Scandanavia. At a time when traditional faith is challenged by modern science, the old pagan gods still haunt the northern forests. Kernaghan blends fantasy and historical realism to create an enchanting, provocative story that will inspire readers of all ages.

The Alchemist’s Daughter ((Thistledown 2004)) was shortlisted for the Sheila Egoff Prize for Children’s Literature and the Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice award. The experimental Dance of the Snow Dragon, a young adult fantasy novel with a Tibetan Buddhist background, was published in 1995 by Thistledown Press. In addition to her fantasy novel work, Kernaghan’s poems and short stories have appeared in many North American publications, both mainstream and speculative. Eileen Kernaghan lives in New Westminster, British Columbia.
