Nantucket Island in the summertime a dream come true, right? Not for twelve year old Adelaide, whose father died a year earlier and now has one ambition in life: to be a great explorer and adventuress like her idol, Amelia Earhart. Adelaide loves fantasizing about the future exotic places shell travel to, to help her escape whats really going on. To Adelaide, going to her grandparents house on Nantucket for the whole summer, with her younger brother Louis in tow to take care of, sure doesnt fit the bill. She thinks. . . Adelaide couldnt be more wrong. When, at her grandparents house, she decides to go out exploring when she comes across an extraordinary white rose in her grandmothers island garden. She clips it and boom! A chain of events is set in motion that pull her into another world of the Hidden Forest, a realm where she must battle the Merqueen to save her younger brother Louis, with the help of Max the Sankaty Lynx, McFadden the faerie fisherman and King Micah, a Native American islander. Through doing so, Adelaide ultimately is able to bring herself back to life. The Hidden Forest is a middle grade fantasy/adventure novel in the tradition of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the Redwall series. Set on the magical island of Nantucket, it is a story of learning how to grieve and heal the past in order to live in and embrace the present. One could say the theme is the only way out of the forest is through the forest.
