Customer Reviews

There is certainly plenty going on in this one! With their parent both being key workers Quoia, Jude and Kaleb are dispatched to live with their Aunt Felicity (call me Fliss) during the first lockdown. Fliss lives in the home her late husband drew up the plans for and the children are rather excited at the different layout. She takes them out for their daily exercise to a couple of local ruins and all three of them are interested to find out more about the history of these buildings. When the meet three local children - at a two metre distance, of course - they get drawn into a mystery connecting those others with the ruins they have visited and end up in a precarious position. This is a tale which entranced me; there are some strange goings on but all clearly explained and easy to follow. I can imagine the YA audience that this book is aimed at being totally enthralled by it. With a historical mystery, a present day conundrum and lockdown to deal with, the author does an excellent job of keeping all threads straight. I can't say I'm keen on the cover; had my review not been requested I'm not sure I would have picked this one up. My only criticism of the book would be that the children are just too well behaved and their language is a bit too proper. But that doesn't take away from the engaging story and I'm happy to give this one four stars.
