A great find

If you could sum up Frost Hollow Hall in three words, what would they be?

A fairly traditional ghost story set in the 1880's, " Funny Scary Beautiful".


What was one of the most memorable moments of Frost Hollow Hall?

Just the casual cruelty and indifference shown to the maids by the powers that be when it suits them and the stoic little heroine.


What does Penny Rawlins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A great regional accent and understatement that wouldn't come across in print. Good to have an unusual accent for a change.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Tilly lost in the snow, near death but so calm.


Any additional comments?

Will look out for this author and narrator again, a book good for all ages a nice mystery and sometimes scarier than most books directed at young ones, a nice cosy scary though.

Ghostly awakenings and a secret shame.
