Sometimes the magic lies within.
Fourteen-year-old flutist Lee Ann Graves is a survivor. She spent the long days of chemotherapy listening to the song of a Carolina wren. One day he reveals himself as Songcatcher, a talking bird from the magical realm of Finian Jahndra—a land in danger of being consumed by a deadly canker that only she can truly understand.
Lee Ann is transported to Finian Jahndra where the animals call her by her real name—Leandra. She is restored to health and her flute transformed by what magic is left in the world. But as she searches for the source of the canker, the malignant forces take their toll, not only on the land, but on Leandra’s physical and mental well-being. With the help of her new bird friends and an arrogant human prince, Leandra must find a way to heal a land she has learned to love before it is too late.
