Lady Katherine is quite a character! She breaks the mold of young noblewoman on the first page. She is spunky and inventive, always looking for adventure. From taking part in a bucket brigade to solving a murder mystery, there is never a dull moment. Put her in a chilly haunted castle and you can imagine what will happen. This novel is delightful and fun for all ages. I would gladly recommend it to any young person I know. Katherine is strong, yet respectful most of the time. The descriptions of her surroundings spoke to my imagination and I could clearly envision her quarters on deck, the stone walls of the castle passageways, and her encounter with the castle’s unearthly occupants. Of course the ending leaves you anticipating the next in this series to see what further scrapes Lady Katherine gets herself into.
