About the Author
I was raised abroad, on a pungent mix of Latin American culture, English history and Swedish traditions. As a result I'm multilingual and most of my reading is historical- both non-fiction and fiction. Possessed of a lively imagination, I have drawers full of potential stories, all of them set in the past. For years I combined a challenging career with four children and the odd snatched moment of writing. Luckily, children grow up, and now I spend most of my free time at my writing desk attempting to decipher the squiggled ideas I've jotted down over the years. Every now and then I succeed. I was always going to be a writer. Now I am - I have achieved my dream.

Occasionally, I wanted to shout “Noooo!” as either Alex or Matthew (mostly Matthew!) did something silly, but that “something” usually racked up the suspense which was deliciously tense throughout. The harshness of the 17th century colonial America for indentured - read slave - labour was grimly described: meagre rations, gruelling, long days of work, beatings and ground-in indifference reminded me of accounts of 1930/40s Nazi Germany.
The timeslip story adds another layer and allows us to engage well with Alex. I hope it’s not a spoiler, but I thought Isaac’s visit was a little short and would have liked to have seen him stranded until the next book, but that’s a personal niggle. The writing is vivid and succinct, drawing you on inexorably to the next chapter. Ms Belfrage, I will be reading your next book very soon.
As the characters and story are as fascinating as they are, I immediately bought the third book as well and I am looking forward to dig into it on my vacation.
