Sarah Broadhurst's view...

What a delightful book. Full of action, drama and emotion, it is a wonderful, inspiring read. Furthermore the writing is stunningly beautiful. It is about Adeliza who is both blind and deaf as a result of scarlet fever as a small child. She is befriended by a girl who had a sister who was also deaf and blind. They become inseparable. We follow their lives surprisingly into the Boer War which is not where you would expect this sort of book to go. It is short, immensely powerful and moving. Certainly my favourite book of the month. Stunning.

A beautifully crafted mesh of conquering adversity/hist-fict/ghost story with a murder investigation slipped in for good measure. A satisfying novel that's worth every penny and, indeed, every melting moment spent in its company.--The Book Bag A fascinating story--My Weekly The Visitors is Mascull's debut novel and it is very accomplished... The story is one of friendship, of love and loss, of adventure and at its heart a compelling and affecting ghost story... This is the great triumph of this book - that Mascull makes us consider head on what it is that makes us human... This is an engaging, fresh story that approaches its subject matter with insight and delicacy.--bookmunch.wordpress.com What a delightful book.
