A spell-binding story of curses and magic from the author of One Wish and The Thirteen Treasures (winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize) On the isle of Crowstone, set upon eerie marshes with a prison as its closest neighbour, the Widdershins sisters; Betty, Fliss and Charlie set out to break a family curse which keeps them imprisoned on the island. If they leave, they'll die before the next sunset. However, the curse isn't the only unusual thing about the Widdershins. Each of them possesses a magical object that's been passed down through the family. Granny calls it 'a pinch of magic...' but can the items aid the girls in their quest? Or will they have better luck with the mysterious prisoner who claims he can help them — if he can really be trusted, that is. A magical tale of three very different sisters involving travelling bags, thieving galore, and a prison break that doesn't go quite to plan. The Widdershins...?hat more could go wrong?
