The Wonderful by Erin Good

The Wonderful by Erin Good

An elderly man who in his heyday was the king of the strange and magical in his verification job for Wonder Inc, now lives in nostalgia for a life that no longer exists. He has never recovered from the death of his daughter many years ago and there is no more magic left in his job.

When the company sends him to follow up a lead, he reluctantly obeys and finds an equally lost soul in the form of young girl who can levitate. He realises there’s no place in this life for either of them and his last contribution to the world is to set her free.
