Cadi is angry at not being allowed to ask about her father and her sister - she wants to know who she is. Her mother Violet believes she can control her terrors only by refusing to talk about them. And Lili, Cadi's aunt, is stuck in the middle. In a world of hauntings and magic, in a small village where it rains all August, this summer the secrets and the ghosts are finally waking up and none of the Hopkins women will be able to escape them.

Review:

"Charming, quirky, magical. " --Joanne Harris

" Carol Lovekin's prose is full of beautifully strange poetry" --Rebecca Mascull, author of The Visitors and Song of the Sea Maid

" Drawing on nature, witchcraft, age-old fairytales and secrets, Lovekin weaves a powerful, spellbinding tale." --Judith Kinghorn, author of The Last Summer"one of the most exquisitely beautiful books that I've read in a really long time. This novel has an almost dream-like quality to it and the writing is so evocative; it's simply a book not to be missed!" --Hayley, Rather Too Fond of Books

"Beautifully written it pulled me in from the very first page... A magical and emotional read fully deserving of my five star award." --Jo Lambert

"Every so often, a book comes along that makes me feel as if the words I have at my disposal can't possibly be enough to put together a review that does it full justice... read it, experience it, and love every moment of it as much as I did." --Being Anne...

"A marvellous example of a novel that is mystical, examines human resilience and finally redemption. Absolutely beautiful, charming and a delight to read." --Ali the Dragon Slayer

"left me feeling full of hope and happiness, and feeling like I had just finished a very magical book." --Faye, A Daydreamer's Thoughts

"Ghostbird is an engaging, female-centred narrative... A debut well worth a few hours of your time." --Naomi Frisby, The Writes of Woman
