I'm so happy I read this! I can't possibly afford the titles between Autumn and this one so I figured might as well take the plunge. I was dying to read more Kingscote stories and I wasn't disappointed. Some things were utterly confusing but Sally Hayward does a surprisingly good and very subtle job at quickly reminding the reader of what happened in previous books (which to me was of course very handy). I loved the writing which is as unique as Forest's and I really enjoyed Hayward's character...more
One of the best sequels not written by the original author that I've ever read. Language - dialogue and description - all spot-on. Characters brilliant, and Sally Hayward develops them in the sort of way you feel Antonia Forest might have done. Plot, very much in the style of Antonia Forest, and Sally Hayward doesn't shy away from forcing her characters to make difficult decisions, or from the results when they do. Thoroughly recommended to any Antonia Forest fan!
Well done! Ms. Hayward convincingly portrayed the author's characters and style and doubtless delighted more readers than I with this plot. It would be wrong to quibble over every "like" that should have been an "as."
This doesn't have the moments of exact rightness of the real thing, and while some of Lawrie's moments are good, I think Hayward understands her less than Forest and she is definitely more comfortable with Nicola. But really I think the only real misstep was the Ginty letter thing. It captured too perfectly the feeling of anxiety dreams; Ginty might as well have found herself naked and late in the exam hall. I thought Ginty was actually in character, without being exaggerated into a hate figure,...more
Dilemma, because in a way I'm interrupting Antonia Forest (with the historical ones still to read) with another author. But this book is so good that actually it doesn't feel like another author. Brilliant plot - there is an enormous amount going on, but it all fits - and superb characterisation: they are all AF's characters, but they develop, in exactly the right way, through the story. And how lovely to meet Selby at long last.

Not quite Forest herself, but does very nicely to be going on with.
