The Return of the Key
16 year old Eliza Aurelio grapples with her mixed race identity amid rising racial tensions on her little island. For their safety, Eliza’s grandfather sends her and her grandmother to a quiet town in Southwest England to stay with a relative.
But this otherwise quiet town has been turned upside down by people mysteriously disappearing.
Eliza eventually encounters a magical but dangerous realm accessible through a doorway in the town, and sees its connection to the abductions.
She intends to put things right, only wanting to protect her family. To do this, she must return a stolen key to lock the open doorway. But Eliza has to overcome her own inner conflicts if she is to stand any chance of being successful and leaving the other realm alive.
Suspenseful and enchanting, The Return of the Key explores the power of love, sacrifice and the journey to self acceptance.

‘An imaginative and engaging story of mystical places and heroic characters’ – Lynda Anning, Author, Dreams of Death
