At seventeen, Maité’s mortal world is torn apart with the tragic loss of her parents. Uprooted from the only home she’s ever known and isolated in a foreign country, the young woman struggles to make sense of her new life. But the conflict in the realm of Faery is about to bleed over into Maité’s reality. She finds herself in the middle of an ancient struggle between Nahia and the Beautiful One as they furiously clash for control over the realm.
Through her Cradle Gift, Maité uncovers the extent of the Faery Realm’s involvement in her life, and in her quest to come to terms with it, Maité has the help of best friend Emily, and David; a young man whose interest in genetics illuminates possibilities that will change her identity forever.
A beautiful novel for women of all ages. I was immediately drawn into the fantasy and was soon rooting for Maité. The book is full of heartbreak for this seventeen-year-old girl... the tragic loss of her much-loved parents and because of that, being uprooted from the only world she'd ever known and having to live with an seemingly rude and uncaring grandfather in a foreign country. But that is not the end of her troubles, she soon learns about yet another world, a world she could never have imagined existed.
From start to finish this book keeps you enthralled. Once you start reading it you can’t put it down.
love, envy are all felt so vividly in each ... When Maité receives her gift this will trigger not only a desire to know about her past but also to her salvation in a fairy world that is as unreal as it is crazy. Curiosity, love, envy are all felt so vividly in each page. Great story! Great author!!
Wonderful series, must read.
The second book in this Faery series and I wasn't disappointed. Once again the author is a wonderful story teller and you will find yourself lost in the faery world, cheering for your favorite characters. I love it when I have the privilege to read a subject matter such as faeries and get to see a whole new twist on things. I won't say a lot about the storyline because it all needs to be a surprise, but I will say it was worth my time reading it. Will be watching for more books from this author!

Patricia is an amazing writer, describes the scene so your mind goes there, paints a perfect picture and the story flows so well, you don't want to put it down because you are lost in the world she created for you, and you have to see what happens to the characters. The pages just keep turning. Highly recommend reading the book, you will not be sorry you did. Women of all ages will love this book, and might very well come away from this make believe world, believing in Fairies.

Love it!!! Great story for all ages!
I can’t get enough of this talented writer’s world of fiction.
Cradle Gift by Patricia Bossano is the second novel in this exciting YA series. This second fantasy book, was magical. The writing was well done. The characters popped out of the pages. Engaging scenes that carried many themes like loss, friendship, and courage. Cradle Gift sends readers like myself deep into the plot. The troubles are only just beginning….a young seventeen-year-old girl has a gift that will spin her entire world out of order. Maite’s two worlds are about to clash and it will soon involve a long struggle that will try tearing her apart. The ending was epic…I can’t get enough of this talented writer’s world of fiction. Her characters will never be forgotten. Overall, I highly recommend the Cradle Gift to all.
