The Night Gardener // Katie Lou McCabe
Library copy. The Night Gardener is categorized as a children's book, but I think it's legitimately a story for any age group. Auxier has crafted a masterful ghost story, set in 19th century England, and hints at the Irish Potato Famine. This is a terrific book. It really drew me in and was a real page turner, right up to the end. It reminded me of home and I could relate to Molly and Kip. I have never heard anyone in Ireland say the words 'canna' or 'dinna'.
As far as I'm aware that's a Scottish expression. Reading those words jarred me out of the story a little bit.

But it's a small criticism. I highly recommend everyone to read this novel. I would really look forward to a sequel to this novel. Here at Walmart.

source link See our disclaimer. This follow-up to Auxier's exceptional debut, "Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, " is a Victorian ghost story that follows two abandoned Irish siblings who travel to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house.
But the house and its inhabitants are not quite what they seem. Soon, the children are confronted by a mysterious stranger--and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives. A mesmerizing read and a testament to the magical power of storytelling, "The Night Gardener" is a spine-chilling fable in the tradition of Washington Irving and Edgar Allan Poe.
