Description Edit

A brand new, 11,000 word Newford tale featuring the Crow Girls. Illustrated by the author. "The Newford books have all been written in such a way that you should be able to pick up any one and get a full and complete story. However, characters do reoccur, off center stage as it were, and their stories do follow a sequence." ~ GR | Make a Joyful Noise (#17)
