Grace lives in a small, country town. Just like any country town. With shops, a school, a football pitch and a trainline. There’s just one thing that sets the town apart: at the age of sixteen the girls of Grace’s town must undertake a journey. A Descending. On Grace’s birthday it is her turn to Descend, but will she unlock her magical birthright? Or die trying? The story takes place in a fictious town where magic is engraved in the very heart of the community. Grace walks in the footsteps of generations of witches, helping to maintain the town’s connection to an ancient magic, and the balance between light and dark magic, putting her own life at stake in the process. Take the first step into Margaret's literary universe.
