When young Jamie discovers an ancient burial ground not far from his home, little does he know what he’s about to encounter. Set in a small town in Northen England, Mike Evers blends the lessons of the past with the trials of living in the modern world. The key to writing a good historical story is to make it interesting enough to intrigue the reader to want to not only enjoy reading the story in it’s entirety, but to want to learn more when they have finished the fiction and explore the factual. This novella does just that.
Although is begins a little slow, it quickly picks up the pace and delivers an exceptionally warm and emotional story. The characters are fully formed and the conflicts are real, despite the paranormal aspects of the tale. I recommend that anyone with children get their kids to read this book, it will encourage them to learn more about the past and possibly want to engage in reading if they do not already. But this is an enjoyable read for all ages. For a quick read with an emotional and entertaining punch, please check out this book.
