Evie’s Ghost


When Evie stays in her unfamiliar godmother’s Georgian home, she is unprepared for events in which she will play a pivotal role. A scratched message in the glass, tapping twigs on the midnight window pane, and a desperate, haunted figure initiate Evie’s transition from London teenager to Georgian scullery maid. As an unskilled Evie, learning the ropes from Polly, she is forced to play her part, while trying to solve the riddle of how to save Sophia, the haunted midnight ghost, and ensure a return to the 21st century.

I enjoyed reading ‘Evie’s Ghost‘. The story is well researched, strongly composed and draws thoughtful comparisons between the lives, roles and expectations of children and teenagers over two centuries. Bookwagon recommends ‘Evie’s Ghost‘ to committed readers, who enjoy historical, dramatic, character driven stories, aged from 10 or 11 years of age.
