A Necklace of Souls
by R. L. Stedman

Dana wishes she wasn’t a princess. She’s always being told how to behave, what to wear. The collier’s cart seems the perfect escape. Only she didn’t realize she’d become so dirty, or so lost. Fortunately this boy, Will, has a sense of direction. And next to the forbidding stranger, N’tombe, he seems reassuringly normal.
Welcome to the award-winning world of A Necklace of Souls: a story of love and loss, of shattered lives and desperate hopes. For bravery is not always measured by strength and magic can be real, if only one has the courage to dream.
Shortlisted for the Sir Julius Vogel Award, A Necklace of Souls was awarded the Tessa Duder Award for Young Adult Fiction and Best First Book at the New Zealand Post Book Awards
