Review

This book certainly makes me think of Alice in Wonderland... there are some very distinct similarities --Waterstones.com

The seven year old was VERY excited at receiving this book having already read the first book from the Thorn Gate Trilogy, Escape from Mercy Hall. The books are full of intrigue, mild peril and strong characters. They are perfectly suited for children aged seven and above with an appetite for chapter books. The book follows the exploits of three orphans, Milly, George and Sam as they escape from the grey world of a Victorian orphanage into a land of unsettling modernity. The books remind me of a mixture of The Faraway Tree, Narnia and Alice in Wonderland which I find exciting. --www.arewenearlythereyetmummy.com

Action packed read --The School Run.com

Product Description

Secrets of Mercy Hall

A thrilling new adventure by Garth Edwards with illustrations by Max Stasyuk.

A book for children age 9-11. The second of the Thorn Gate trilogy.

“What is the secret of the hedge?” growled Jethro Barking as he towered over them... “I’ll feed you to the sharks, hang you up by your feet, give you to the Muttons one by one if you don’t speak up!”

The orphanage is fast running out of money. George, Milly, Charlie and Singer go back through the hedge in search of the diamond traders who live in the hills of that strange land.
Danger lurks around every corner: Snakeheads guard the trade route and their old adversaries, the Robes are hot on their trail.

Help is at hand from their old friends, Drago and Batty, and some new ones, like the walking, talking Polly trees, the brave little Jambucks and Tod Beanpole, the crazy rocket boy who lives on the mountain.

And thanks to the Rainbow Cave, the children have strange powers of their own...

Can the children find the diamonds and save Mercy Hall? Or will they be captured by the Robes and again be at the mercy of Old Barking Mad?

More About the Author

On leaving university I worked in the chemical industry for many years, a rewarding occupation, although writing was always my main love. At the time I had to support a mortgage, a wife and two small children so the idea of becoming a full time author remained a dream until recently when I took the opportunity to jump ship and start writing for real.

I went back to the stories I told to my children when they were little. I found they loved stories about dragons, wizards, fairies, goblins, giants, talking animals so together we made up a world of fantasy. I showed them how to use the magic words what if?
Here's how it works: One day I was inspecting a turkey farm and was amazed at the hundreds of Christmas turkeys gobbling around the floor of a huge barn. What, I thought, if one of those turkeys was an incredibly intelligent bird and very different from all those other turkeys in the barn. So it was that Wiffen the most intelligent turkey in the world was created and what a preposterous creature he turned out to be. (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch - Shipwrecked.)

What if the huge hedge that ran alongside a holiday home we once rented in Wales was really hiding a mysterious and forbidden land inhabited by strange creatures? This led to an exciting adventure book called Escape from Mercy Hall, which turned into a trilogy.

What if there really was treasure at the end of a rainbow? (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch - The Trolls of Sugar Loaf Wood.)

What if the field mouse we spotted at the end of the garden was really a tiny dragon that could breathe fire? (The Adventures of Titch and Mitch - Shipwrecked.)

And so it goes on.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Mercy Hall adventures 31 Oct 2011
By Parents in Touch TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Part Two of The Thorn Gate trilogy takes us further into the adventures of George, Milly, Charlie and Singer. The orphanage is fast running out of money, so it's time to sell the diamonds from their last trip through the hedge. On their travels through the RainbowCave, the three orphans had acquired unusual skills, and every one of those skills will be required to counter the dangers they encounter in this exciting new adventure. A gripping and fast-moving story which captures the attention right from the start and has you supporting the characters through their wonderful endeavours. Read Escape From Mercy Hall first though!
