Synopsis

The Faery's Gift by Tanya Robin Batt

If you could make a single wish, what would you wish for? Would you ask for riches, tasty treats or perhaps the ability to fly? A humble woodcutter faces this very dilemma when he rescues a faery one day in the woods. After much conflicting advice from his family, the woodcutter is torn between three difficult choices and must make a decision that will change their lives forever.
