Review quote

So here's a new, wild, free voice. * Books for Keeps * A wonderful novel * The School Librarian * A corker of a novel, original and rambunctious.... Fantastical, yet down to earth, funny and ripe with details of eighteenth century life. * The Observer * A beautifully crafted, spine-tingling story by first time novelist Julie Hearn. * The Daily Telegraph * This book is gripping, gentle, funny, and downright scary at times. It also captures brilliantly the gulf between children's concerns, and what their parents think is on their minds. * The Guardian *show more
