Review by Karen Simpson Nikakis:
This book has the most luscious, satiny cover, which encloses a delightful story, aimed at the younger end of a young adult readership, but thoroughly enjoyable nevertheless for someone of my more mature years.
The relationships between the four main characters, whose 13th birthdays fall within days of each other, are sensitively drawn, and the descriptions of the Scottish countryside, both in the real world, and in faerie, made me want to rush out and buy a one-way ticket there. Burn’s tinkle and snow glimmers on the crags, but it’s a harsh landscape, especially in Mary Queen of Scots time, where Hannah must lead her friends to break the curse on her family and reclaim her long lost father.
The parts of the narrative set in 1567 have a firm sense of the authentic, from the chamber pots being tipped from windows, to the endless diet of variations on porridge the poor subsisted on. Hannah’s left-handedness brands her as a witch, and the power of superstition, combined with the wild beauty of the landscape, renders the transition to the faerie realm easy to accept. A great read.
