5.0 out of 5 stars Season of secrets Sally Nicholls 13 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the most sensitive,pages turning books for young people published this year. It deals with family tragedy, the sudden death of a mother and the impact on those left behind. The fantasy element is woven beautifully round the story. I am a school librarian,and my girls are reading it very quickly and recommending it to their friends.As a follow on from Ways to live for ever it is another triumph for Sally Nicholls!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and Just A Touch of Magic 28 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another sad book from this author. I read Ways to Live Forever earlier this year and that was a moving and powerful book. This book was also moving - this time with a touch of magic intertwined with the story. I enjoyed it very much but not as much as the other book. I love this author's writing, but I hope she can show some versatility in her next book by not using death to tug at the emotions. Nevertheless a very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Read Since Skellig 9 April 2009
By S. Eves
Season of Secrets entwines the myth of The Green Man with Molly's story of loss and her new life with her grandparents in the country. Sally Nicholls' second children's novel is the best read since Skellig. I think of children's author, David Almond, as my soul author and I didn't think I'd ever find another children's author to match his writing.

Sally's first book, Ways to Live Forever won the Waterstone's Children's Book prize last year. I offered it to my teenage daughter to read and she declined saying, "I don't want to read any more books about dying!" But Ways To Live Forever is not just another book about dying, like Seasons Of Secrets, it's a book about being a child and all the magic and fear and sense of belonging and laughter and tragedy that childhood brings.

Sally Nicholls is the second of my soul authors and she has written her second brilliant Children's Book - I'll want to read everything she writes.

By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. It tells the story of two sisters, Hannah and Molly, through Molly's first person narrative. Their mother died suddenly and their father has gone completely to pieces, dumping them with his aged parents, far from home, while he tries to rebuild his life and mourn his wife. Molly is confused and hurt by his reaction and her sister's anger at everyone. She struggles fitting in to her new community, and one night, when Hannah's latest rage sends them running into the darkness, away from 'home', she loses her sister and comes across an injured man in the lane. The man is set upon by a wild hunt led by a horned man, and Molly is thrown into a world where she balances the supernatural against the every day life of living without her mum, and trying to come to terms with both, all set against the turning of the year. The way I have described the story doesn't really do it justice. It is much more simple and powerful to actually read it. It is beautifully written, and very engaging. I thought the way it dealt with bereavement was novel, and effective. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars very beautifully written 6 April 2009
This has the sort of deceptive simplicity that makes writing look so easy! Each observation or description is deftly chosen. The world that Nicholls depicts seems timeless; grandparents as shopkeepers; school is a short walk down the hill; hawthorns form the dense hedgerows. It would be an idyll, if it wasn't for the strange hunt that takes place just beyond the village. And Dad's painful absence.
Molly feels that she must take care of the hunted man, but how can she when she isn't even sure that he's real?
Season of Secrets did remind me of David Almond's work, not just the mysterious stranger, but also the descriptions of the northern countryside. But comparison with Skellig is no bad thing! This is a real treat.
