About the book: 

Enter a spellbinding world of magic and wonder and meet Cordelia, who comes from a long line of magical Maker milliners, weaving alchemy and enchantment into every hat. Only a few special Maker families remain and when Cordelia’s father is lost at sea, Cordelia sets out to find him – and why someone is trying to start a magical Maker war!
