MEDIA REVIEWS
'This notable debut mixes vivid history with supernatural adventure and from its dark depths friendship, forgiveness and parental love rise to the surface.' Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times 'A strong new voice in children's fiction... draws a wonderfully authentic portrait of a wilful tween desperate to find out more about her origins... Worth locking yourself up for an afternoon's reading pleasure.' Alex O'Connell, The Times 'Putting a different spin on the Tudor period, this pacy historical tale paints an intriguing and authentic picture of the times that will fascinate young fans of history. With some spooky and gruesome moments, it is best suited to readers of 11 and above, but older children will find much to enjoy in Hardstaff's gripping adventure.' Booktrust The Executioner's Daughter was chosen as Children's Book of the Week by The Sunday Times and The Times.
