Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow


“As the light caught its tunic making it shine and shimmer like butterfly wings it made her shudder. In spite of the beauty of the clothes it was ugly. The back of its bulging head and long fingered hands were the same sickly non-shade. No fur, no feathers and no colour. He was Casuista.”

This is an unearthly tale about an unusual girl called Eirwen. She is 50cm tall with green skin, blue hair and golden eyes. There are many questions to be answered: she was born on another planet, so why is she living on Earth and being protected by her two brothers, Gwyn and Tomos – and why are those brothers snow geese?

The monster of a creature, Casuista, is also from another planet: what does he want on Earth and why are animals disappearing or losing their colours?

Their protectors, the Learned Ravens, are unable to help so can Eirwen?

When Gwyn is also snatched Eirwen begins her dangerous journey to find and rescue the prisoners in the process discovering new inner strengths and passions.

Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow is wonderfully magical with vivid descriptions and a fascinating antagonist. It is a story that can be enjoyed by all age groups.

Pearl Denham

Pearl spent twenty years with young people teaching mathematics and IT and gained a Ph.D researching the fascinating area of Mental Models developed by children between the ages of nine and fourteen. In retirement she began to paint finding a particular interest in plants and animals. These included paintings for her grandchildren which stimulated visual imagination and told a story.

A writing for Children course with The London School of Journalism helped her to get ideas into words and writing started. Membership of Denmead Writers Group with leader writer Carol Westron and fellow students encouraged and developed her love of words and visual imagination. Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow is her debut novel, and the first of the Nereid Trilogy.
