Reviews

"a charming and appealingly atmospheric debut novel." --Toronto Star


"Original. Exquisitely written. Lockyer takes her story of a young girl dealing with the death of her father in directions that foil your expectations, turning a painful world of loss and mourning into a celebration of life. Utterly charming." --Rosemary Sullivan, author of The Betrayal of Anne Frank: A Cold Case Investigation


"Gentle, wise and beautifully weird: this is a novel which takes seriously the spooky and tender dimensions of grief and our imagined afterlives." --Gail Jones, author of Five Bells

"This is a magical novel, death-obsessed yet thrumming with life, wondrously attuned to tender and unexpected connection. I loved it! Brooke Lockyer writes like a dream. Every sentence made me see the world newly. Read Burr and be transformed." --Catherine Bush, author of Blaze Island and The Rules of Engagement
