Mrs. Murray’s Ghost (The Piccadilly Street Series Book 1) by Emily -Jane Hills Orford

9-year-old Madi’s Review: 5+-Stars

I’m sorry I didn’t get to finish the book. We had company for days. I’ve been given three more days. I’ve read to chapter 8, so I’m going to review those now and finish my review in the comments.

Diane Andersen’s Review: 4-Stars

I wanted to really like this story and settled in great anticipation for an old-fashioned Gothic tale about a little girl in a large gloomy estate with a mysterious past and a restless wandering spirit for her to befriend or, perhaps, be terrorized by. The cover evoked just such a haunting, titillating image with a promise of all those things to come. However, I soon found I had not fallen into a Gothic mystery a la Catherine Sefton’s book, In a Blue Velvet Dress, or even a whimsical romantic tale like The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, both which were among my childhood favorites. While Orford’s story had some elements of those beloved classics, it failed to capture the same sort of enchantment.
