The Raggity Woman.jpeg

by Mike Morgan

Illyrian is the granddaughter of the ruler of the eastern steppes. Hers should be a life of luxury—instead, she is abandoned as a newborn baby, condemned to absolute poverty, and cruelly dubbed the Raggedy Woman, all for the crime of her mother dying in childbirth.

 

Illyrian won’t let the hatred of her estranged grandfather define her life; nor will she allow hurtful magical pranks to get under her skin.

(Inspired by the traditional English fairy stories The Hedley Kow and Tattercoats.)
