Alisha Nurseabout this book: Young Eliza Aurelio's mixed race identity pits her at the heart of rising racial conflicts on her little island. She escapes with her family to a small town in Southwest England. But this new home may be no safer than her last, with its wave of mysterious kidnappings.
When Eliza learns the secret behind the disappearances, she encounters a doorway between her world and a curious, magical realm.
Determined to keep her loved ones safe, Eliza sets out to find the key and close the doorway. She is joined by two faeries and her best friend Gwen, who will do anything to keep her safe. But this parlous realm of glorious things has rules of its own, and one wrong move could have fatal consequences.
Eliza's inner resolve is tested when she is separated from her friends. She must fight against unknown enemies, natural obstacles and her own inner demons if she wants to keep her family safe, save her friends and make it back home alive.
Inspired by real life events, The Returning of the Key is a captivating story about one girl's journey to self discovery and the power of love and sacrifice.
