Original, perceptive and witty; edgy, shrewd and sly; this is a dazzling read from a Charlie’s Angel of an author who delivers karate chops with both hands and winks at the audience while she does it. Twelve-year-old Niall, a farmer’s son, is alone in the farmhouse when he hears a blood-curdling shriek outside. He tracks the sound down to an old well in the corner of his garden. He rescues Sathra, a banshee girl who’s been transported through a time warp from the thirteenth century to the present day. After this captivating opening Niall and Sathra set off for lots of unlikely yet spellbinding adventures. But whose side is Sathra really on? Truth may be stranger than fiction but in the altered reality of Lovejoy's intricate tale you'll keep on guessing till the end and you'll think about the story long after you've finished reading. Gritty, quirky, smart and vibrantly funny, BANSHEE IN THE WELL is as compelling as it is entertaining.
