Embark on a dark and lush journey through the land of Whichwood in this stunning companion to Tahereh Mafi's acclaimed bestseller Furthermore.
Our story begins on a frosty night . . .
Laylee can barely remember the happier times before her beloved mother died. Before her father, driven by grief, lost his wits (and his way). Before she was the left as the sole remaining mordeshoor in the village of Whichwood, destined to spend her days washing the bodies of the dead and preparing their souls for the afterlife. It's become easy to forget and easier still to ignore her own ever increasing loneliness and the way her hands are stiffening and turning silver, just like her hair.
But soon, a pair of familiar strangers appear, and Laylee's world is turned upside down as she rediscovers color, magic, and the healing power of friendship.
Lush and darkly enchanting, critically-acclaimed author Tahereh Mafi weaves an all-new magical adventure in this companion to the New York Times bestselling Furthermore.
