Faery Tale: One Woman's Search for Enchantment in a Modern World by Signe Pike is currently bargain priced for $6.00 for paperback format ($15 list price)--a lower price than the ebook price for the paper lovers out there. This book is featured in Mary McMyne's Fairy Tale Book Giveaway. But since only one person can win that copy, I wanted to share this one for those wanting an interesting read about the search for faerie/faery.
One of Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2010
A skeptic's search for magic, one faery at a time.
In search of something to believe in again, Signe Pike left behind a career in Manhattan to undertake a magical journey-literally. In a sweeping tour through England, Ireland, Scotland, and beyond, she takes readers to dark glens and abandoned forests, ancient sacred sites, and local pubs, seeking those who might still believe in the mysterious beings we've relegated to the dusty corners of our childhood imaginations: faeries. But as Signe attempts to connect with the spirit world, she'll come to view herself and the world around her in a profoundly new way.
Engaging and full of heart, Faery Tale is more than a memoir-it's the story of rekindling that spark of belief that makes even the most skeptical among us feel like a kid again.
