I bought this book for 2 sets of grand children but of course “nana” had to read it first!
As someone who read the original Enid Blyton books as a child and enjoys gothic/supernatural novels as an adult I was in my element as this book combines the two of those elements.
I was transported back to my inner child and immersed myself in the tale of Holly and Alice, in fact I walked up to my local beach in search of a moonstone, well, you never know!
This is a magical book that holds your interest from the first page to the last, it also has a subtle but meaningful message, family is everything, love is everything and good can overcome evil.
My grandchildren are in for a treat!!!!!
What a fantastic book. It is so beautifully written each page has had us wanting to know more. Even with places mentioned that we know so well it takes you to somewhere special and makes those places magical. Our next visit to Ashridge will we spent hunting for that magic. A great book to share that’s takes you on many adventures. I couldn’t recommend it enough. We can’t wait for the next one in the series.
A thoroughly enjoyable read, for children and adults alike. As a grown up (most of the time) it brought back the escapism and fantasy of Enid Blyton and CS Lewis – even better as it’s set in the familiar yet fantastic settings of Cornwall and Ashridge.
Can’t wait for the rest of the books in the trilogy. Get it onto your Christmas wish list!
