The Lost Child of LychfordBook - 2016
A finalist for the 2017 Locus Award for Best Novella!
It's December in the English village of Lychford - the first Christmas since an evil conglomerate tried to force open the borders between our world and... another.
Which means it's Lizzie's first Christmas as Reverend of St. Martin's. Which means more stress, more expectation, more scrutiny by the congregation. Which means... well, business as usual, really.
Until the apparition of a small boy finds its way to Lizzie in the church. Is he a ghost? A vision? Something else? Whatever the truth, our trio of witches (they don't approve of "coven") are about to face their toughest battle, yet!
The Lost Child of Lychford is the sequel to Paul Cornell's Witches of Lychford .

To Judith’s surprise, the ghost now appeared, looking at her from around the edge of a pew. That lost, demanding face. Judith looked sternly back. Yes, she could see how that would get to the soft girl. “You go on home, then,” she said. It had come out more gently than she’d intended. “If you know where that is. I give you permission to do so and I give you strength.” She winced as the little pulse of life left her. She hadn’t meant to give up so much of that either. She’d regret that moment on her deathbed.
“A ghost isn’t often a person. It most probably don’t have feelings you can hurt or soothe. It’s just a . . . whatchamacallit, a symbol. Like the green man on the traffic light.”
