MG Book Review: The Secret of Nightingale Wood by Lucy Strange

So good you will read it in one sitting!

The word haunted means different things.

It’s 1919 and the members of Henry’s (Henrietta’s) family are haunted. Her mother is haunted by grief. Henry’s brother recently died in a fire. She’s bed-ridden with depression. Her father is haunted by anger. He runs away leaving the family behind. Henry is haunted by guilt. She argued with her brother before he died. She seeks comfort in her books and a ghost!

When doctors scheme to put her mother into an asylum and take her little sister away Henry must come up with a plan to save the day. She’ll need the help of a strange woman she meets in the woods, the ghost of her brother and a few of her friends (the books she so loves). Ultimately she finds just what she needs in herself, courage.

With lyrical writing and a pitch perfect heart breaking voice, this story will have you thinking about it long after it’s done. It’s a powerful story about love, loss and mental illness. Destined to become an instant classic, The Secret of Nightingale Wood will not let go.

It is a must read.
