Review

this is a classic - a special, secret world is beckoning --authonomy.com

This is a brilliant book. I so want to read on and, not just find out, but live through, what happens next --authonomy.com

This is sure to be a children's classic --authonomy.com

An excellent piece of writing, --authonomy.com

You don't hear enough old legands woven into modern stories these days, so it's nice to fingd someone keeping them alive.

From the Author

The idea for The Midwinter Child came to me in the summer when my nine year old son Jacob, who is mildly ADHD, needed a new book for me to read to him. I decided to write one especially for him. It held his attention every night and left him begging for another chapter. I very much hope your child will feel the same way about it.

I had only intended to have a brief scan through the book to see if it were suitable as an Xmas Gift for my nephews and neices .. but found to my complete surprise that I was enthralled with the storyline after reading the first two lines! Then of course there was no going back and I simply had to read the book from cover to cover as I became well and truly hooked on the tale of King Arthur and Excalibur. An excellent tale of adventure which appeals to girls, boys and grownups too! I will certainly keep my eyes open for any more books by this Author for without doubt .. she is a Star in the making.

This a not to be missed adventure for children and adults alike. An excellent read, you just cann't put it down once you start. Thrilling story line of magic and legends of King Arthur brought believably up to date. It seams to me that this can not possibly be the last we hear of Alex, his sword Excalibur, and his best friend Callie.

My 9 yr old grandson is waiting with bated breath for me to give him this book for his birthday. He read the first three chapters a couple of weeks ago. The look of sheer joy on his face once he had finished them was enough for me to go out and buy it. He loved it and is so excited about owning the whole book and keeps asking me when am I going to give it to him. My initial plan was to wait until his birthday but I don't think he will want to wait that long so I will be presenting him with it in a couple of weeks time.

I will do another review later once I get his feedback, but I know he will not be disappointed, this is a book for all boys and girls whatever age. Cleverly written by the author, she has a great future, and I sincerely hope it won't be long before her books are snapped up for filming. Move over Rowling, Reid is on her way.

This was a fabulous book, really fabulous. Reading it, it's hard to comprehend why it hasn't been snapped up by a major publisher - it would certainly make an excellent film. I think what makes this story different - and so good - is that it has a narrative EVERY child can identify with and imagine themselves the hero of; each and every one of them could be a Callie, or an Alex. Rather than creating a story of distant heros, legends and wizards, this story brings a whole host of heritage legends into the modern world in a way that every child can understand and imagine themselves being part of. It is beautifully written, accessible and excellently constructed. There are clues and threads running through it that could easily become new story lines and I hope the author will continue publishing. I've read it to my children, who were utterly captivated by it, and bought additional copies for my nieces and nephews. I found myself as intrigued by the story line as my children so, like all quality literature, this appeals to readers on a number of levels. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to inspire their children with imagination, magic and the incredible power of the English language. I wish I'd had this to read as a child. Susan Kinnear.
