Stardust
by Neil Gaiman

In the sleepy English countryside at the dawn of the Victorian era lies the village of Wall - a secluded hamlet. The lesiurely pace in Wall is disrupted only once every nine years as the mortal and magical meet upon the meadow for a market fair like no other.

It is here in Wall that young Tristan Thorn loses his heart to the town beauty - a woman who is as cold and distant as the star she and Tristan see fall from the sky. To gain the hand of his beloved in marriage, Tristan vows to fetch the fallen star and embarks upon a quest that willl take him over the ancient wall and into a world beyond his wildest imaginings...

A tale of romance, magic, and glamour, the multiple award-winning STARDUST is a spellbinding story.

This truly is a fairy tale for grown-ups. It begins, "There was once a young man who wished to gain his Heart's Desire. And while that is, as beginnings go, not entirely novel ... there was much about this young man and what happened to him that was unusual, although even he never knew the whole tale of it."
