Emma Carroll, in her spooky debut, makes the Gothic ghost story her own ... believable, moving and just the right sort of frightening (Daily Telegraph)
This is a charming story which, despite dealing with dark themes of grief, poverty and death, remains light-hearted and hopeful. With wonderful description and great characterisation, Emma Carroll is a real find and Frost Hollow Hall is a perfect ghostly mystery for fans of Eva Ibbotson, Ellen Renner and Marie-Louise Jense (We Love This Book)
An emotionally-charged historical tale and a very believable ghost story rolled into one (The Telegraph)
The perfect wintry ghost story (The Sunday Express)
From the queen of historical fiction, Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll is a ghostly tale about love, loss and forgiveness with an instant classic feel.See all Product description

Although I liked this book I did not rate it higher as I felt it was lacking a little in the ending. It is a nice gentle ghost story a little scary at times but not anything that will scare the pants off you.
I really enjoyed this book, it was fun and full of mystery. I like the characters and the setting, the story was enjoyable and flowed well. I enjoyed all the secrets and the brilliantly clever big reveal, but for me the secrets were tame, clever and made sense but tame. Kit seemed like a decent person, the whole story is set around the place of his death, it was a haunting setting with such a sad story but a beautiful ending. I was engrossed from the first page, my attachment did not falter until the last page.
The house was creepy yet beautiful, I was so engaged with the setting that I felt like I was actually there. I liked the idea of a large house with lots of rumours surrounding it and the family that lived there. Even with the ghostly goings on I would love to visit there.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, books set in the 1800′s, or drama. I would definitely read this book again and I have already given a copy of the book for my mum to read. If you want a page-turner, pick this book up.
4.5 out 5 stars, the tameness let it down slightly for me.
Set in Victorian England, Frost Hollow Hall is mirthless, cold and imposing. The maids report strange and frightening goings on that are more than bumps in the night. Frost Hollow Hall has a secret that needs to be told.
Tilly is feisty and flawed, but instantly likeable. She has her own problems: she feels second best to her better-looking sister, unloved by her mother and the father she admires does a bunk, leaving them penniless and about to be evicted from their home. Then there's Will, the lovely Will, who seems to be the one person who truly understands her. Not that she'll let him.
A great debut. I look forward to reading more from Mrs Carroll.
A family estate, old house, wintry scenes, ghost, lake, forest, graveyard, maids glore, upstairs downstairs, its all there
You can tell a book is truly great when you get goose bumps whilst reading and the fast pace of the novel leaves you craving more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good ghost story and for those who love a thrilling captivating read.
If you're greedy with books as I am, you will want to sit yourself somewhere comfortable and read it all in one sitting. A definite page turner which leaves you wanting more.
Beautifully written and entertaining for both children and adults, this book is a must read for anyone. Especially those who loves a chilling, Victorian ghost tale!
I am eagerly awaiting Emma Carroll's next book 'The Girl Who Walked On Air', as well as anymore that are in the pipeline.
The narrative voice is great - Tilly's a really likeable character. But what struck me most was the realisation that - in those days - one child's life was worth more than another's because of the class system - heart-rending stuff!
I gave it 4 stars because its amazing, but that extra star that's missing is because some parts were a bit boring.
I bought this book because I had read 'In Darkling Woods' first and saw this being advertised.
Best book ever!! Xx
