Epiphany – THE GOLDING
by Sonya Deanna Terry
THE AWARD-WINNING TALE OF A HIDDEN HISTORY
The Global Financial Crisis is about to rock the economy and an 18th-century book written by Edward Lillibridge and published under the guise of fiction is out-of print, available only at antiquarian stores and largely overlooked.

Lillibridge’s tale about a gold-obsessed kingdom (and the sprites they enslave: elfin clan dwellers whose currency of choice is kindness) has ignited a memory Rosetta cannot explain.
On Friday evenings Rosettta’s “Lillibridge” book club meets at the lamplit vintage home she’s secured to escape a gruesome intruder…but who could the stranger be? A prowler from the suburb Rosetta and her daughter fled? Or an ancient time traveler bent on suppressing a world-changing secret…
