Horrified at having witnessed her father’s murder and fearing that the killers are agents of Queen Elizabeth I, eleven-year-old Alice Tuckfield hides in the Yorkshire cathedral by disguising herself as one of the choirboys.
The best part of A Murder for her Majesty is, without a doubt, the characters. I mean, they are vivid, and real, and… humorous. (This ups the book many stars in my ratings.)
Mime is currently rejoicing that Smeagol is now free (AKA, she’s on holidays.) She adores A Murder for Her Majesty, by the way, and gave it 5 stars, and recommends it to anyone and everyone. Or maybe not, but close. Like she said, Smeagol is free, though her schoolwork refuses to leave now and never come back. Master won’t permit it (Hi, Mum.)
