Review of Summer of the Mourning Cloak (27 May 2014) :
"....It is the most beautifully written book that draws you into the situations as if you are permanently a fly on the wall, or perhaps a butterfly hovering over Hyslop. The characters are so well drawn, I have very clear impressions of Northy, Sandy and Vanessa....I found myself reading faster and faster as the story gripped me, wanting to know the outcome....The age recommendation I would modify to anyone over the age of 11, as I found myself becoming part of the plot, and revelling in your delightful descriptive passages, and I am clearly a tad over 11!"
