Review Quotes




"Hahn's story is characteristically steeped in eerie atmosphere, and the novel's blend of historical drama, the supernatural, and the intricacies of adolescent friendship is a gripping combination." --PW "Hahn is a veteran author who clearly knows her apples about writing ghost stories, as this, her latest inventive page-turner, evidences... Shivers aplenty, but also genuine emotion that will invite empathy." -- Booklist "Another historical and chilling success." --Kirkus "Another solid addition to Hahn's oeuvre, this would also make a spine-chilling pair with Cohen's The Doll's Eye." --Bulletin --
