What Quill & Quire says about The Ghost of Northumberland Strait:
Charly is a fully realized 13-year-old, and Grammie is especially vividly drawn. Katherine is also well realized, and the way she interacts with Charly...provides an unusual twist on ghost story conventions. Many readers will love this poignant, hopeful novel.
