Reviews

Praise for Blue (2001): 'The most gripping and heart-rending book I have read in a long-time' 'A must-read book' 'Wow! This book was breathtaking.' Praise for Reckless (2002): 'This is the only book that has ever made me cry. Beautifully told from start to finish.' Praise for Damages (2006): 'I couldn't put this book down' * Amazon reviews *
The review describes the book as 'Breath taking yet at times brutal'. There is something quite touching and unique about seeing history played out through the innocent and purity of the two young girls. Abigail and Grace are truly inspiring characters who can teach us all how to be a better human beings and more accepting of those whom we share our world. Relevant and memorable, this is a story that will stay with me always. -- Shelley Fellows * http://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/book/13148/Hill-of-the-Angels-by-Sue-Mayfield.html *
