The author’s writing is tight, well-structured and deftly plotted.” Magpies magazine “A fascinating, brooding, deliciously chilling setting for a most innovative, refreshingly original novel, which tingles with spookiness and the ever-present whiff of death.” Sunday Tasmanian “Through the eyes of the central character, we get a thoroughly authentic feeling about what life was like for folk in those far-gone days. Author Carole Wilkinson, who writes these exciting stories with a verve and a keen eye for authenticity, has based her fictional leading character, Ramose, on a real person.” The Literature Base
