Review quote

Praise for The Folk Keeper: 'Combines the foreboding romance of ballads with the Gothic drama of ancient legends ... [The Folk Keeper] is artfully plotted and melodically written' New York Times 'A minor masterpiece of compression: sharply written and highly engaging for 10 to 16-year-olds' TES 'A most enchanting, original and compulsive fantasy. The reader is fascinated, drawn in from the very beginning ... The language is rich and expressive and the emotional involvement with all of the characters is developed with consummate skill and craftswomanship. Highly recommended' School Librarianshow more
