This is an absolutely great book that gives a good sense of time period its set in. It’s a comfortable read but it constantly keeps you on your toes. I couldn’t put it down.
Thanks for all your inspiration at Holly Lodge. The children really enjoyed it and I have had reports from teachers of children, who normally struggle to put pen to paper, writing pages. One of the children never even does his homework but asked if he could take his story home and write more chapters.
This is a great follow up from Walking with the Hood and I enjoyed it even more. I really liked the characters, the good ones and the bad and the action was great.
Thanks again for visiting us last week. The children really enjoyed your talk and the workshops. One class spent nearly the whole day writing after you saw them. It was great to see so many of the children inspired.
