More about the Book
When philandering Jack climbs a beanstalk and steals a giant's golden egg-laying goose, he decides to skip town with his ill-gotten gains, leaving his wife Jill in the lurch.
Turns out, being married to the town hunk isn't all it's cracked up to be...
All Jill wanted when she settled in the little town of Brackendale was to lead an uncomplicated life and stop looking over her shoulder. But just months into her marriage with Jack, all that changes.
At first charming, she discovers he's a cheat who's been wheedling money out of his fancy women. Not only that, but he's been borrowing money from her, bleeding his own mother dry, and letting the family farm go to rack and ruin.
And his latest shenanigans? He's swapped his mother's last cow for a handful of magic beans, climbed the giant beanstalk that sprouted from them and - right from under the nose of a sky-dwelling giant - he's stolen a goose that lays golden eggs worth a small fortune.
Unfortunately for Jill, Jack is more slippery than she realises, and when she finally confronts him, he skips town with the goose and his stash.
In a brave attempt to put things right and save the family farm from going under, she gives chase through Dark Heart Forest - notoriously dangerous territory that's fit for no woman to travel alone.
But there's another obstacle standing in her way. She's not the only one who knows about the bird and Jack's fortune. Others are desperate to get their hands on it, too.
In a race against time, Jill needs to track down her reckless husband before the others do. But does she stand any real hope of recovering his ill-gotten gains, saving the family farm, and salvaging her crumbling marriage - or was her quest doomed right from the start?
