Reviews and comments;
“Your characters are well drawn and very vivid. I already like Miriam and you’ve made me curious to see how she gets on with the horrible Marchpanes.”
“I liked it quite a bit. I’m interested to see what happens next to these kids. The dream sequences and fantasy remind me of Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle series a bit (and a little of Sense and Sensibility too). Good set up.”
“It’s very intriguing! I want to know more about Neil and why he’s with these people. And who or what are the Marchpanes? Good set up and hook.”
“I really liked it and it made me want to read the rest. I absolutely dislike Mrs. Marchpane and will be interested to see how the author handles her storyline. Nothing for me is more gripping than a child who is treated as less than but somehow overcomes obstacles created by mean-spriited adults.”
“Love the dialogue! Where did you get your characters names? They’re fabulous! This is wonderful!”
