The Window of Cluttered Glass is an YA crossover fantasy inspired by dark fairytales and jagged mountain landscapes.
When Adelaide receives an art scholarship to attend a prestigious boarding school on the remote Cully Island, she tries to build a life in the shadow of her mother’s unexplained disappearance the previous summer. But soon she begins to find unsettling evidence connecting her mother to a string of missing people on Cully and the myth of a Witch that preserves captured souls in stained glass.
On the night of the Harvest Festival, Adelaide chases her mother’s spirit into the dark woods, followed by Roland, a classmate who knows more about Adelaide than he should. Together they must find their way back home through beautiful and dangerous landscapes of Cully, a landscape that remembers the ghosts and bloodshed of the Ewen and the Wilkish settlers, a legacy that belongs to both Roland and Adelaide in different ways.
