The Cottingley Secret review ë eBook or Kindle ePUB Anagh finds an old manuscript in her late grandfather’s bookshop she becomes fascinated by the story it tells of two young girls who mystified the world But it is the discovery of an old photograph that leads her to realize how the fairy girls’ lives intertwine with hers connecting past to present and blurring her understanding of what is real and what is imagined As she begins to understand why a nation once believed in fairies can Olivia find a way to believe in herself. This is a rather clever fictional approach to the true story of the Cottingley fairies Back in 1917 when photography was still fairly basic and people were less cynical than today two young girls fooled the world with photos of paper fairies posed at the bottom of their garden This is the true part of the story to which Hazel Gaynor has added some fictional family members to link events to Olivia who lives in the current dayBoth stories that of the young girls and their fairies and of Olivia and her bookshop are charming and eually interesting The settings are beautifully described and of course I loved the bit about Leeds Library since I used to work there many years agoI appreciated the way the author handled the story of the fairies It is generally agreed today that it was a hoax and indeed the pictures are actually uite unrealistic but it was nice that she wrote it as though there was no intent to deceive at least not to deceive the general public So a small trick on the family turned into larger things And of course if you do believe in fairies Ms Gaynor leaves the possibility open

The Cottingley Secret review ë eBook or Kindle ePUB The author of The Girl Who Came Home turns the clock back one hundred years to a time when two young girls from Cottingley Yorkshire convinced the world that they had done the impossible and photographed fairies in their garden Now in her newest novel international bestseller Hazel Gaynor reimagines their story1917 It was inexplicable impossible but it had to be true didn’t it When two young cousins Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright from Cottingley England claim to have ph. The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor is a 2017 William Morrow Paperbacks publication Charming and magical This novel is based on the real events surrounding a group of photographs taken by sixteen year old Elsie Wright and her nine year old cousin Frances Griffiths in Cottingley England in 1917 The photographs allegedly captured images of fairies at the Cottingley Beck a stream where the two girls often played The photos garnered the attention of Sherlock Holmes author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who featured the story in The Strand Magazine in 1920 For years the public debated whether or not the photos were genuine or if it was all a big hoax This novel tells a fictional account of Elsie and Frances and their adventures alongside the current day story of Olivia Kavanagh a woman who has come to set her grandparents affairs in order after the death of her grandfather Olivia is engaged with a life back in London but after inheriting her grandfather s bookstore she begins to reassess her life and decides to stay and manage the bookstore unable to bring herself to sell it But along with the bookshop Olivia s grandfather left behind a manuscript written by Frances Griffiths in which she details what really happened back in 1917 and puts to rest the uestion regarding the one photo Frances insists is the real deal This is a delightful and fanciful accounting of Elsie and Frances life story and how they gave the gift of hope and a little bit of magic to people during the dark and bleak days of world war one It is fascinating to me how people seized hold of the possibility that the fairies did indeed exist and could be captured on film I think there is a bit of psychology behind that with world war one raging in the background I also enjoyed the way the story unfolded bit by bit through the eyes of Olivia who has found the courage to rediscover her true self and in so doing finds that maybe just maybe believing in fairies and magic might not be a bad thing after all For me this story occasionally had a sad and bittersweet tone but mostly it was sweet and whimsical and I enjoyed immersing myself in the dual time lines allowing myself to be swept away by the history and even felt a slight tingle of magic along the way so much so I might have become a bit of a believer myself Although this novel is mostly conjecture I think the author captured the atmosphere perfectly and built an interesting story around true events I have since done a few Google searches on the Cottingley fairies It s an amazing story that captured the public s imagination for decades I think the time and place had a lot to do with why those pictures became such a phenomenon but that the the myth persisted as long as it did is what makes the story so captivating Overall I think what makes the story work is the reminder that sometimes believing in something gives it a certain power regardless of how fantastical and sometimes something fantastical can give people real hope and that magic comes in many forms4 stars
