Paddy Jones ordinary life as a young architect in York is suddenly transformed when, while travelling home from his parents house in Hepby after his traditional Christmas visit, his ardent curiosity leads him to follow a mysterious beam of light and he finds himself catapulted into the parallel universe of Tunnelton. Why was he there? How did he get there? And, most importantly, how would he get back home? As he travels around his new and unusual environment, which is to be his home for the next seven days, his imagination is stretched to the limit as he searches for the answers to his questions, meeting a whole host of engaging and intriguing characters, and gradually uncovering the mysteries of this strange and enchanting place. One thing s for sure, this would turn out to be the most fascinating, thought-provoking and awesome New Year of his life, and he would never be able to look at a duck or an umbrella in the same way again!

Review:

The debut novel Rachel Donkersley The Umbrella Graveyard - an imaginative story about a hero explorer. Her hero Paddy encounters an unprecedented string of events when he stumbles upon Tunnelton, a town existing in a parallel universe. --Huddesfield Express and Chronicle

When I first saw my review copy of Umbrella Graveyard I thought it was a children s book, but something about the artwork drew me, made me focus a bit like an itch you cannot scratch. A row of detached houses drawn in pastel colours, cartoon-style. Innocent, but the more you look the more their transparent nature becomes evident. The ordinary is hiding something extraordinary. Umbrella Graveyard is about a young architect who finds himself catapulted into a strange, parallel universe called Tunnelton. For the next seven days Tunnelton is the home of Paddy Jones Tunnelton and the many strange characters who live within its twilight boundaries. As Jones struggles to come to terms with his bizarre translocation he asks himself questions; some trivial, others profound. Umbrella Graveyard is The Prisoner revisited, but with a few good twists. Donkersley is a very young writer but a gifted one. This, her first novel, is very promising indeed. Somehow I can feel a sequel coming on... --Mike Hallowell, The Shields Gazette

The author can undoubtedly write, there's talent here. --The Self Publishing Magazine
