Thirteen-year-old Claire is a smart girl wrapped up in logic and science and the proper order of natural things, but her keen interest in nature and art draws her to an enchanting creek where her artistic talent freely flows. It isn't until Grandma comes to live in Claire's home that the logic of things comes into question.

Old and feeble, both in body and mind, it seems, Grandma divulges a secret to Claire--she believes in fairies! The bond that slowly forms between these two is magnificent! Sayre has created a generational book sure to be loved by the smart young readers it has been written for while having the surprising ability to captivate its adult audience, too. I just finished reading this lovely book! I loved how the author made the 13 year-old lead character, Claire, so strong, rational, and focused, but also allowed her to open herself up to intuition and wonder.

This story re-awoke my own memories - as I'm sure it may similarly do for many readers - of a summer I spent with my grandparents when I was 11, especially with my grandfather, and how special he made me feel. Your book brought back memories of the stories he shared with me about my family and his life - and life in general. Thank you to the author for creating and sharing this story with the world. This is such a great book, for so many reasons. The author has woven her fairy dust into my heart and I am so proud to call her my cousin!

The Fairies of Turtle Creek by Jill K. Sayre (2013, Paperback)

I will be recommending this book to all my friends regardless of their age. Deeply moving and heartfelt, I hope to be reading more books from this talented writer. Fairies of Turtle Creek is simply enchanting. I will admit that I started to read this story on my own because I had heard about this book and Jill Sayre the writer before the book was even in print.

But I realized I was really leaving my daughter out in the cold of this excitement. Then it finally occurred to me how much better an adventure and a fantasy that this could be if we just share it together. I loved how the author made the 13 year-old lead character, Claire, so strong, rational, and focused, but also allowed her to open herself up to intuition and wonder.

This story re-awoke my own memories - as I'm sure it may similarly do for many readers - of a summer I spent with my grandparents when I was 11, especially with my grandfather, and how special he made me feel.

Apr 27, Jeanne Skartsiaris rated it it was amazing. The Fairies of Turtle Creek is a fun book filled with magic and heartfelt relationships. The characters were real and I could relate to Claire struggling with her conflict between science and magic - as well as having to deal with her grandmother's visit and her brother fighting a war.

Claire needs more proof than what her old grandmother offers until small miracles happen. We're all blessed with miracles every day but don't always see them. I enjoyed seeing the world through C The Fairies of Turtle Creek is a fun book filled with magic and heartfelt relationships. I enjoyed seeing the world through Claire's eyes.

And will even now catch myself looking under a leaf or petal to see if I can find some magic!! Jun 12, Courtney Anz rated it really liked it Shelves: An independent-minded young girl goes against age-old assumptions and decides to have faith in her grandmother's crazy notions the entire family thinks the grandmother is off-kilter. In the process, not only does she fall in love with her grandmother, she begins to have a larger faith in her own heart and mind. Young teens who are not ready to grow up, but are already feeling the pressures to do so will LOVE this story.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The Fairies of Turtle Creek is magical realism at its best. Delightfully written with an enthralling storyline that captivates and encourages reflection along the way. Jill K Sayre has a real talent for bringing her characters to life, each one vibrant and immediately endearing. I will certainly be recommending to friends with similar reading tastes as my own. Apr 14, Rae rated it it was amazing. A sweet little tale of an estranged, eccentric grandmother reconnecting with her young scientifically minded granddaughter to show here the magic of the world around her through her life story.

Love the weaving of logic with the spiritual realm and the idea that fairies are earthly Angels. A beautiful feel good story. Feb 09, Simon rated it it was amazing. Wonderfully imaginative, real escapism within the pages of a book. A new twist on Fairies with an enthralling plot that I found totally absorbing and superbly written. What more can I say except excellent.

Feb 14, Annastewhotmail. Beautifully written and wonderfully descriptive, Jill Sayre really has captured the essence of magic we associate with fairies. One of those books that simply draws you into another time and place and leaves you wanting more. Keen to see what she releases next.
