Belinda Banner promised her mother she’d look after her younger brother, Jay, but when a well-dressed stranger named Ivor comes to her door with a tempting job offer, she sets aside her normal caution. She regrets her decision when she and Jay are carried off through a blinding light to Ivor’s world of Belfair where Jay is expected to play the lead in an elaborate play for the annual festival. Jay is immediately delighted by the director of the play, a round yellow blob of self-importance named Parvan, who has been banished by his people to Belfair to learn humility. In Jay, Parvan sees a way to win his way back home, but he and Belinda clash.
Desperate to return to her world, Belinda insists Ivor take them back. He says he can’t predict the doorways of light. While Jay is rehearsing, Belinda helps Parvan’s neighbor, a handsome young man named Martin, out of a serious depression by finding his living musical reeds. Martin encourages Belinda to dance, a talent she has set aside in order to care for Jay.
Yet there is something sinister about Ivor, and no one in this peaceful world believes her warnings. And Jay becomes more and more involved with the exciting opportunities this new world affords.

A Small Holiday is the second in the Three Worlds series from Silver Leaf Books.
