Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
