Alex is a curious little boy who always wonders. He wonders a lot and asks Mummy lots of questions. One day, he asks a different question: "Why is our family made up of only you and me?" To find the answer to his question, Alex will be taken on an adventure by someone dear to him. Will he find the answer? This book is very useful for children with a different family, other than the traditional family. This is a happy story, designed to make children realize what is really important in every family.

No matter how hard life is, humanity has the power to make it bearable -- or worse. Parliament of Rooks, the new historical paranormal novel in the award-winning Yorkshire Ghosts series, contrasts the beautiful, inspiring village of Haworth today with the slum -- or rookery -- it was during the industrial revolution: rife with disease, heartache, poverty, and child slavery in the mills. In 2017, life expectancy in the UK is 81.

Emma Moorcroft is still grieving after a late miscarriage and moves to her dream house at Thruscross Reservoir with her husband, Dave. Both Emma and Dave hope that moving into their new home signifies a fresh start, but life is not that simple. Emma has nightmares about the reservoir and the drowned village that lies beneath the water, and is further disturbed by the sound of church bells - from a church that no longer exists.

I absolutely loved this book. It had me gripped right from the start. I loved how the 2 time lines run alongside each other. The history the story and the characters had me hooked. This is definitely worth a listen.
