Critic Reviews

"The mystery alone will engage readers, but Broach adds a number of other interesting details to entice her audience. Readers will also find numerous facts about Elizabethan history, theories about Shakespeare's writings, and, perhaps most importantly, a moral but not preachy tale. The main characters are all well developed, and the dialogue is both realistic and well planned." (School Library Journal)
"[Listeners] will appreciate the true emotions, the rich language, and the revelations of many-layered mysteries that tie the past to the present." (Booklist)

Shakespeare or de Vere

Quick moving and enjoyed by the entire family. Introduces literary motifs in a interesting way, along with Shakepeare (or Edward de Vere, whichever you believe).
