An interesting tale, definitely middle-grade, of magic and shadows.

Annabel Grey was raised to be a most proper Victorian young lady, but -- she keeps on seeing visions in puddles. Finally, her mother sends her off to her great-aunts to learn to be a witch. She hates it, ruins the laundry by accident, and is left alone in the shop -- when a strange man comes with a threat. he is building the Dark-Magic Extracting Machine, and he has the Black Wand, and he wants all the good wizards and witches to submit.

Unfortunately, to stop him requires that the youngest magical girl retrieve another wand. That's Annabel.

It involves a troll that wants a star, a betwixter girl, a much married king, a broom that has to be coaxed, handkerchiefs with tears, the story of Annabel's family, and more.
