A Magical Walk with the Goddess of Sound: Finally! A juvenille fiction novel that gave me chills for all the right reasons. Susan Hale has written a modern-day fairytale for all ages of a young girl's quest to find her voice. It interweaves the best and worst of being human and the worst and best of being magical. Her characters spring to life instantly from the lonely young Emma to her fragile grandmother, Maizy, to the very entertaining trees spirits only Emma can save with the help of her uncle, Alf. Throughout, we are reminded of the significance of ancestry and redemption, the power of the voice to heal, and the importance of family -- nature being as much our family as our human counterparts. Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation awakens us to the magic all around us. You may even find yourself singing to the trees! --Dielle Ciesco, author of The Unknown Mother

Fantasy of this kind is not a genre I would normally gravitate to, and I set about reading it more out of curiosity than anything and was quickly drawn in by the extraordinarily original characters created by the author. Highly recommended.
Author Susan Elizabeth Hale has written a lovely fictional work, and it should be included in every child’s library!
That is just the beginning of the fantastic voyage, author Susan Hale is taking us on. As Emma, albeit reluctantly, sets out to save the world, readers will enjoy the twists and turns of the story. What I loved was that it made me think of our trees and their importance for sustaining life on earth. How we often take them for granted and chop them down without a thought. Hale’s story reminds us of the fragility of our natural environment in a fun and adventurous way.
A great tale for young readers and adults alike who want to feel close to nature. Colorful characters, good and bad, will keep you entertained and on your toes to the last page. It certainly makes me wish there were an Emma Oliver out there to keep our trees safe.
