Fortune's Magic Farm by Suzanne Selfors

Fortune's Magic Farm by Suzanne Selfors is an amazing new fairytale that tells about the strength of the heart and the need to be strong to save those that we care most about. Ten years ago Isabelle was left on a doorstep in a town called Runny Cove, and was taken in by an elderly woman named Grandma Maxine. Grandma Maxine tells stories about long ago when it didn't rain every day and the town was called Sunny Cove. Back then the fathers would fish for food and profit instead of working in the umbrella factory. Now, because of a man named Mr. Supreme, everyone in the town works in the factory, because if they didn't they would starve, since the fish swam away. Isabelle is curious about her past, and it comes and finds her in a way she didn't expect. Her family's farm has an interesting past, but can she find out why she was left on a doorstep, and can she convince her grandfather to help her friends in Runny Cove to be free of the wicked Mr. Supreme?
This book is an amazing find. It has magic on every page and surprises that keep you guessing. I enjoyed reading this and loved every minute of it. Suzanne is an amazing author. She develops her characters so well that you begin to believe that they are real. I hope that she will continue to write more and believe that she has the ability to become the next J.K. Rowling.
