  4. Just as good as the first book in the seriesI m anxious to get started on the 3rd Certainly some of the events are real or, to be accurate, they are partly hidden in a genuine English ballad that was composed and sung centuries ago Just as the song in Grabien s well received first novel in this unusual series, The Weaver and the Factory Maid, tells a story that may or may not be based on an actual event but that in any case reflects perfectly the world in which it is set And once again our two [...]


  5. What I got from this book besides a smashingly good write up of ghostly phenomena was a lot of information about the life and times of Richard II and how his people lived The heroine inherits a charming theater that no one has ever completed a season in In fact, all the shops in the block have had hard times, including unexplained deaths There is a great deal of scholarly detail presented in a fun way.


  6. Terrific blend of mystery, history, ghosts, and London Very quick read as the plot sucks you in This one even has librarians and archivists in it, all trying to solve the haunting of a theater property from the 1300s There may not have really been a Lady Agnes, but the author makes a convincing case for her story and her tragedy Partial quibble I wish that mystery books published in the last 10 years would not predictably introduce something about child molesting


  7. Music, ghosts, history, mystery A delicious morsel Grabien manages to pull together some unusal elements and make them work well together The only thing I don t much like is the title, because it isn t familiar to me, and doesn t make me think of a mystery at all But the cover is pretty, isn t it


  8. Fabulous I love this series it s terrific There is just enough creepiness to make one feel spooked just a bit when reading it alone at home, but it s not so bad that it gives one nightmares, and the spooky moments are nicely broken up I really like how she works these ballads in with English history and makes the story just come alive I can t wait to get on with the next book.


  9. I read one of her books in this series many years ago and now that I ve found some of the others in my local libraries, I ll read them all I love the interactions between the people and the supernatural Enjoying folk music the fact that the series is based on songs is really interesting.



  10. main characters Penny Wintercraft Hawkes a theatre director, Ringan Laine a folk musician and architectural historian restoration consultant




  11. This was a surprise book Part ghost story, part history lesson and part theatre, it held my interest from start to finish I m not a great fan of ghost stories, but this was one I ll recommend
