The Billow Maiden by James Dixon

Updated: Apr 10, 2023

A beautiful weaving of ancient Norse mythology with a moving, modern-day tale of family, friendship and healing, set against an evocative, remote Scottish island landscape that will well and truly sweep you away.

From a remarkable new talent and winner of the inaugural Guppy Books MG open submission competition, James Dixon's debut novel is a forceful storm of a book. Deeply heartfelt and blazingly beautiful, The Billow Maiden flickers with a rich and immersive magic, reminiscent of the likes of Catherine Doyle and Kiran Millwood-Hargrave. But Dixon's tender exploration of the healing, transformative power and purpose of the natural world is perhaps the greatest magic of all.

Tamsin Rosewell's stunning artwork just brings it to a whole other level. This is the kind of book that you will want to have on your shelves.
