Erika | 5 comments I read this book in middle school between 1998-2000. It was probably published in the late 80’s or 90’s. It was from the fantasy genre and included a magical land that the young female main character found by following a trail that brought her to a waterfall with a hidden entrance. Once she was in the magical land there was some kind of dangerous landmark that lured people by emitting a pleasant scent that specifically appealed to each individual. For the main character I think it was a warm scent of cinnamon/honey/nuts/vanilla. I think this book may have also featured a relationship between the main character and her grandmother. Please help!

This might be it! I will have to re-read it to be sure but it was originally published in the right time frame. Thanks so much!

Just to confirm, are you saying The Tunnel Behind the Waterfall is your book?


message 7: by Erika (new)

Erika | 5 comments No, sadly. I looked into it a bit more and it’s not the story I’m looking for.

Rainbowheart | 20133 comments Kind of reminds me of Shadow Castle, but I think it's too old and I don't remember a waterfall.

Erika | 5 comments After giving up on this search for a while I've decided to give it another go as I can't stop thinking about it! I've checked out both suggestions here and although Shadow Castle sounds kind of similar it is not the book I'm looking for. So, bump.
