Ruby has always been called “strange” … She is an orphan, and has no family in the village. She sees ghosts in the woods. Hummingbirds follow her around like shadows. In fact, she’s never fit in. So when her best friend, Wyn, starts talking about traveling across the sea to a new world, she’s ecstatic … isn’t she? Is she truly ready to leave everything she knows behind?
Then, just as they begin to formulate a plan, a stranger arrives in town, and the world stops feeling safe. The town of Killybeg rarely receives visitors, and Ruby has taken this isolation for granted. In fact, she herself has never been outside the village.
But all that’s about to change.
Suddenly Wyn is taking chances he never took before, and putting himself in danger. Ruby is finding herself more conflicted every day about the idea of leaving the small town, and wondering more and more about what her past held.
The stranger has come and gone, leaving a vague feeling of unease behind him.
Will Ruby be able to escape the island at all, and venture out into the wide world with Wyn? Or will she find herself – and everyone she loves – paying the price for a history she doesn’t even know she escaped? Find out in this first installment of the Hummingbird Saga, a tale of love, loyalty, and lies, and the past that might come to save Ruby’s life … or destroy her.
