The Orphan of Cemetery Hill by Hester Fox
"I read an advanced copy of this story. This book fit in very well with Fox's previous stories. The main character, Tabby, was very interesting and had a very cool backstory. I thought that setting the story in 1840s-1850s Boston and the UK within the" Read more of this review »

“Yet at the same time I want to untether my heart, toss it up into the sky and let it take wing. There's a wildness here that, if nothing else, holds promise, possibility. Who needs society? What has it ever done for us?”
Hester Fox, The Witch of Willow Hall

“Maybe it was time to stop listening to her brain and start listening to her heart. But even so, the most confident soldier did not go into battle without armor.”
Hester Fox, The Widow of Pale Harbor

“We put our feet on the hard ground, take in the night air and look around as if this whole place has sprung up for us and us alone. Not just the house, but the ancient trees, the watching insects, the stars and even the moon. But they have all lived without us for lifetimes that make our own look like the blink of the eye. The house, with its strict walls and severe lines, is shamefully out of place, something modern dropped down somewhere as soft as feathers, as twisty and spreading as willow roots. How do the trees and the insects and the stars and the moon like it, I wonder? How do they like to have to share their secret lives with us now?”
Hester Fox, The Witch of Willow Hall
