Hello readers! I’ve got another review of a great book for you. Here it is:
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge embraced me into the story and once I was a few words in, I was hooked. The opening sentence beckoned me in, not to mention the title and the brilliant cover.
The main plot is focused on a young girl called Faith, daughter of natural scientist and reverend, Erasmus Sunderly. The family go to Vane, an isolated island, where her father needed to do some scientific business. When her father is found dead, Faith also finds one of her father’s famous belongings, the Lie Tree. She is determined to untangle the truth and solve the mystery of the murder of her Dad. All my theories and guesses of the Murderer were wrong and it was a fantastic plot.
The description throughout the story is absolutely phenomenal and Hardinge writes with so much compassion, I love it. I definitely recommend this story to any 9/10 year old or over, as the story can sometimes get quite scary! I really enjoyed this story.
