Hi, I’m Elizabeth Foster, author of Esme’s Wish.

Welcome to my website! After a long genesis, Esme’s Wish, my debut novel for younger teens, will be published by Odyssey Books in October, 2017. The story has already met with a very positive reception and two sequels are planned to complete the trilogy. Scroll down for more information on the first book in the series.

Esme’s Wish

When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the actions of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother – so why can’t she?

But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. Esme soon discovers that her mother, Ariane – a talented painter of myths and legends – once led a secret second life in the crumbling canal city of Esperance. The more Esme discovers about Ariane, the more she questions whether she really knew her mother at all…

Esme’s Wish, a fantasy with a mystery at its heart, leads the reader into a beguiling world to which they’ll want to return again and again.

Now, nothing else mattered. She had found the place her mother had whispered of, the place sewn into the fabric of her dreams.

Praise for Esme’s Wish

“I found the story very unique… this book overtook my expectations… A beautiful, fantastical mystery. I would love to read multiple books following this one. I’m dying for a sequel now and this book hasn’t even been released.”

- Tamsyn, 15

“I was enchanted by the world, awed by the creatures and as motivated as Esme to find out what happened to her mother.”

- Angie, 14

This colorful, well-constructed tale is as much detective story as fantasy and deftly blends both elements into a page-turning plot… I was fascinated by the creative water world of Aeolia, described in Elizabeth Foster’s limpid, seductive prose.”

- Sarah Scheele for Readers’ Favorite 5 STARS
