Publisher's Summary

Will dares Tilly to come ice-skating up at Frost Hollow Hall. No one goes near the place these days. Ten years ago the young heir, Kit Barrington, drowned there in the lake. Rumour has it that the house is haunted.... But Tilly never turns down a dare. Then it goes horribly wrong. The ice breaks, Tilly falls through and almost drowns. At the point of death, a beautiful angel appears and saves her. Kit Barrington's ghost. Kit needs Tilly to solve the mystery of his death, so that his spirit can rest in peace.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Ghostly and good."
    If you could sum up Frost Hollow Hall in three words, what would they be?

    Atmospheric, vivid and charming.


    What other book might you compare Frost Hollow Hall to, and why?

    The only thing I can think of to compare this to is The Secret Garden if only for the the atmosphere it conveyed.


    What about Penny Rawlins’s performance did you like?

    Touching, and respectful of the words.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Ghostly awakenings and a secret shame.


    Any additional comments?

    Fabulous
