Reviews

“Cooper has written a richly plotted, lyrical, and near-epic novel filled with wonderfully realized and sympathetic characters. In sum, this is simply an unforgettable reading experience.”

*Booklist, starred review


*"Well-researched and elegant historical fantasy... Cooper demonstrates, as Little Hawk says, “Change is made by the voice of one person at a time.”

*Publishers Weekly, starred review


“Ghost Hawk is the work of a writer with great imaginative power and long-practiced narrative skill. I was swept up in the story, shocked, moved, and enthralled - and completely convinced by the historical background. I haven't read anything better for a long time."

Philip Pullman
author of The Golden Compass


"Susan Cooper has asked the ghosts of our shared history to sing. And when she asks, they always do."

William Alexander
author of the National Book Award winner GOBLIN SECRETS


"Ghost Hawk is a treasure.... Beautifully written, vivid with its manifest love for the land, it is a story of suffering and survival, both tragic and heroic."

Karen Cushman
author of the Newbery Medal winner THE MIDWIFE'S APPRENTICE


"[A] sensitive portrayal of an unusual friendship."

Kirkus Reviews
