Nothing can stop Flossie - not even being dead. A wonderfully ghostly and gothic tale. * Carole Wilkinson *
The Turnkey is full of research potential for the classroom or out of personal interest. Allison Rushby has cleverly woven accurate historical details, places, people and objects such as the Holy Grail and Mayan crystal skulls, through the gentle but fast-moving narrative.
Highly recommended - even if you don't like ghosts. Actually I feel bad even saying that, Flossie was absolutely gorgeous and I'm sure we would be friends, if she existed, which I kind of hope she doesn't because ... well ...ghosts.
I am always on the lookout for strong female role models in literature and Flossie ticks all the boxes, especially her kindness; we could do with more kindness in life and in afterlife. Flossie is a character who many young readers will connect with, despite her translucence! * Children's Books Daily *
The Turnkey is a solid, original and intriguing tale that has the perfect blend of mystery, history and paranormal activity. * The Bookshelf Gargoyle *
