Charity Woolf

(The second book in the Montefiore's Goddaughter series)
A novel by

'Charity Woolf' is the thrilling sequel to 'Montefiore's Goddaughter' by Elizabeth Brooks...

It's winter in Traumund, and death stalks the snowy streets of Mazurka, city of glittering soirees and moonlit murders. Georgia Wellington-Grub may be a governess - a mere nobody - but she will risk everything to save her city.

It's summer in the Waking World, but if Georgia expects a safe haven at Boughwinds Abbey she is doomed to disappointment. Mr. Montefiore's ghost haunts the abandoned rooms and a young woman named Charity Woolf is in hiding from the world, with nothing but a dark secret for company.

Which of them should Georgia trust in her fight against evil? Where will she turn, in a world where monsters may be allies, and the sweetest smile can mask the most hideous intent?

Reviews of "Montefiore's Goddaughter":

"This is a brilliant book. It is exciting, exceptionally imaginative and very intuitive of the teenager psyche. I did not want to put the book down from the moment I started reading it. It takes the reader into another world, the world of dreams. I think it is as good as any Harry Potter stories and as with these is an excellent read for people of all ages. I loved the illustrations too. I eagerly look forward to reading Elizabeth Brooks' next book." - Joy

"This isn't your usual teen fiction - it's longer, more gothic, a big walloping Victorian sort of novel that'll keep you engrossed during long winter evenings reading in front of the fire." - Iceni

"I think teenagers would love this book but as someone who is well beyond teenage years I must say that it's great for adults too. The story is irresistible, flitting between dreams and spooky reality, but it also manages to tackle adolescent themes of friendship and peer pressure without being patronising, partly because the heroine is so real and likeable. This is a rich, often very funny, novel. I especially liked its mockery of modern obsession with physical appearances and its message that there's more to life. I'm looking forward to the next one in the series." - Verhaeren

"The author takes very real elements from today's world - obsession with superficialities, values that aren't any, pressure to conform - and contrasts them with the beautiful, nuanced and exciting world that her main character enters. Towards the beginning, I felt I knew where the story was headed, but soon realised I was wrong: the plot keeps twisting and turning in wonderful and unexpectable ways. A truly enjoyable read." - Antonia
