Magic runs in the women of Carrie's family. Her grandmother, her father's mother, was the last magical member of the family. Now, because of her love for Grandma, Carrie is developing her magic and learning to use the wondrous treasures that have been passed down through her family. In this book, she meets the wandas, who are female wands. Wandas don't do magic. They are magic. They become what Carrie wishes them to be. This series has three other books, each exploring one of the gifts. The wandas are female wands. The fascinator is a magical hat. The dowsing rods truly search out value. Most of all Carrie has family as her top priority. The magic works to strengthen her connection to her grandmother. And her imagination.
