Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Camrose, a perfectly normal 12-year-old, has inherited responsibility for an ancient bone flute, an object of quest for two time-wandering rivals, one of them lord of the Otherworld. With the help of her friend Mark and the not-quite-human Miranda, Camrose braves fire and much worse to claim the flute and restore it to its rightful--and unexpected--owner.

One by one, the elements of The Bone Flute gathered in Patricia Bow's mind and, she says, decided to make a story. She was struck by ancient tales of a person who does something so terrible that he must roam the earth forever, seeking to make amends. She noted that most cultures have a concept of an Otherworld--not heaven, not hell, just other. And she read about ancient flutes made from animal bones. Three-quarters Celtic, Patricia loves lonely pipe music and is a master storyteller. She is the author of many other books, most fantasy, and many translated into German.

Synopsis:

Camrose must find a way to claim an ancient bone flute and return it to its rightful owner.
