The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill by Rowenna Miller

The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill is a magical story of two sisters who would do anything for each other.


Decades ago, the Fairborn family struck a bargain with the fae granting them ownership of acres of land on Prospect Hill. Today, the family still resides there, taking care of their farm.

Delphine is about to marry into a wealthy and influential family and will soon depart from Prospect Hill.

Alaine and her husband, Jack, never intend to leave their home on the hill. While Delphine prepares for her future, Alaine quietly struggles to keep the farm afloat, making increasingly risky bargains with the fae to pay the bills.

Shortly after the wedding, Delphine realizes her husband is not the man she thought he was. And Alaine will go to great lengths to keep her sister safe.

Review of The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill

This book is a magical, lyrically written feminist fantasy. It follows Delphine and Alaine’s perspectives.

It discusses domestic abuse, women’s suffrage, and classism.

While the writing was beautiful, it was a good way through the book before the plot took off. And while I don’t need to relate to characters, something about the writing style made me feel distant from the characters.

If you like fae stories, then you’ll probably enjoy this one. It goes over familiar lore about the fair folk, but effortlessly keeps it intriguing and even a bit frightening.

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
