A large part of the storyline is based around a ghost called Tansy, and this is quite strange. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, however, it is cleverly intertwined with the rest of the book which makes it as interesting as it is odd, and contributes to the feeling of sadness and loss which permeates the narrative.
The book itself is quite small and a quick read. Doyle’s writing style is simple and to the point, making for enjoyable and easy reading. It doesn’t lend itself easily to any particular age group or genre, but is touching and, at times, funny with charming characters.
