At the dawn of the Victorian era, life moves leisurely in the sleepy village of Wall.
Young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and, to win her love, vows to bring her a star they see fall from the night sky.
It is an oath that sends him over the town's ancient wall and into the mysterious land of Faerie - a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining . . .
WITH STORIES COME POSSIBILITIES.
