Willow Moss is a finder-of-lost-things, a valuable skill to have but not quite so impressive when you come from a long line of witches. Her sisters are the real attraction, they can blow things up, move things with their mind and command respect. Willow thinks of her gift as ‘magical scrapyard rather than magical feast.’
Willow’s gift is invaluable to those who have lost their keys, socks or glasses but usually the real action is happening somewhere else. Granny Floss believes however, that Willow is special because she sees things that other people miss. It’s just that Willow can’t quite see why anyone would consider her to be special.
Yet all of this is about to change when she receives an unexpected visit from Moreg Vaine, the most feared witch in all of Starfell. Moreg Vaine isn’t in the habit of making social visits and shortly after making herself at home in Willow’s house she gets right to the point – she’s in need of help locating something, something big, something unexpected. It appears that someone or something has hijacked last Tuesday, and no one can remember anything that took place that day.
Moreg Vaine has searched far and wide to find someone in Starfell who can remember anything about last Tuesday, but they are all drawing a blank – not even the all-powerful Moreg Vaine can dredge up a faint memory of the day.
Can Willow the finder-of-lost things find an entire day? It’s not a straightforward process by any means, especially when Moreg suspects that if they don’t locate and return Tuesday to its rightful place the results could be disastrous – end of the world disastrous. Read our full review
