The Miraculous Sweetmakers: The Frost Fair by Natasha Hastings


An amazing and captivating, curl-up-on-the-sofa debut about a magical frost fair and the lasting power of friendship.

It's a cold winter during the Great Frost of 1683. Thomasina and Anne are the best of friends, one running her father's sweet shop and the other the apprentice at the family apothecary - together they sell their goods on the frozen River Thames.

When a family tragedy turns Thomasina's world upside down, she is drawn to a mysterious conjuror and the enchanted frost fair. But soon the world of Father Winter threatens to claim everything she holds dear. Will they be able to solve the magical mysteries that surround them . . . ? 


'Spooky and haunting – what struck me most about this historical fiction/fantasy story for children was the high quality of the writing' Philippa Gregory, bestselling author of The Other Boleyn Girl

‘A heart-warming, wintry treat of a read perfect to snuggle up with on cold, snowy days’ Hannah Gold, bestselling author of The Last Bear (Waterstones Children's Book of the Year, 2022)

‘A lovely, frosty debut that combines cosy details and a pacy adventure with thoughtful explorations of grief and responsibility’ Anna James, author of the Pages & Co. series
