Liga's life is filled with dark hearts and foul deeds. So she chooses a protective path of natural magic to find a safe other-worldly place for herself and her two daughters. But when magicked bears and mischief men break the borders of their refuge the girls must face the truth, and engage with the appeal and risk of the real raw world.

Tender Morsels unflinchingly explores the evil and sweetness in the world and the magic of learning to live with both.
