Released April 14, 2021


Will fear and unhappiness sink Maylie’s trip to Ireland?

After nearly getting sent home for her story of revenge against her twin brother, Maylie is determined to not put a toe out of line.

When her worst fear surfaces and results in a horrible mess, her bad mood spirals further downhill as the expected vibrant green countryside ends up only gray, rainy, and dull. Between the weather and her frown, is there anything to raise Maylie’s spirits?

Enter a mysterious old man, new friends, her next story, and the musical heart of the Emerald Isle – which just might be enough magic to bring Maylie back her smile, overcome her fear, and offer some fun along the way.
