Anita Bell and her daughter, Belinda Bell were inspired to write their new book 'Twas Ever after many happy years of bedtime stories. The cover photos of this book were shot by Jonathan Bell, husband and father, and local photographer and cinematographer. A true family affair! The story goes as follows: Gwendolyn, a high-spirited 17th century girl, is thrilled to join her friends for the Maypole Dance. But the celebration comes to a halt when the May Queen is stricken with a mysterious illness. Secretly, Gwendolyn casts a spell that will transport her far into the future -- where she hopes to find a cure for the May Queen. Clarissa, a modern middle school girl, longs to do something special on her own, without grownups. So when she stumbles upon Gwendolyn, she takes a vow of friendship to help the intriguing girl from the past -- whatever it takes. And since Clarissa's parents are away, the coast is clear for adventure! Gwendolyn and Clarissa live three centuries apart. Still, they have more in common than they would ever dream. See the magic of our high-speed times with the wide-eyed wonder of a girl from a long ago world. Discover how everything has changed, except what matters most. This is a wonderful gift for your own daughter or other middle school age girls, especially because it was written by a middle school aged girl. You can purchase this book on Amazon.com. Happy Summer Reading to all.
