Reviews

Doherty paints a very vivid picture ... almost Shardlake for young readers. -- Susan Elkin Independent on Sunday A beautifully paced and measured story ... Berlie Doherty manages to involve the reader completely in WIll's world. Books for Keeps A beautifully crafted book, packed with rich detail and a convincing sense of time and place. The School Librarian A rich piece of historic fiction ... written with great verve. -- Nigethan Sathiyalingam TheBookbag.co.uk Fast and eventful ... there is danger and fear but we never lose sight of what is truly important.
