Reviews

The Seventh Miss Hatfield is a gentle and engaging story that unfolds through the narration of its central character, Cynthia, who, for reasons you will learn in the book, becomes the character of the title. A plot involving time travel and immortality follows, although the story emphasis remains on the characters and their interaction.
SF Book
This book is a very good historical romance. It has some excellent character building, some great relationships and some very neat, elegant writing that really works
Fangs for the Fantasy
I have to once again say that I am impressed with the story, and especially the level of it, the characterization and dialogues feel just as they would have to be in real-life, completely natural and not forced at all
The Book Plank
CALTABIANO INVOKES TIME TRAVEL AND IMMORTALITY TO PLACE AN ENGAGING HEROINE AT THE CENTER OF A GRIPPING STORY
The Big Issue
The tension of the story is well-maintained and gripping and the style fresh
We Love This Book
if you like a light-hearted tale in the corridor of another century then this is a delightful story.
The Bookbag
To me the book was an allegory of losing one's childhood and Anna Caltabiano does it beautifully. The Seventh Miss Hatfield" is as enchanting as Harry Potter and has a rich adventure laden plot. It will make you laugh and cry, often at the same time
Elder Park Book Reviews
17 year old Anna Caltabiano writes a romance that is amusing, enjoyable to read and doesn't slip into prose such as 'he took my roughly and crushed me to his chiselled chest
Starburst Magazine
Positively charming... if you loved The Seventh Miss Hatfield you'll definitely love The Time of the Clockmaker as well.
UPCOMING4ME
This is Anna Caltabiano's second novel, written by the age of seventeen! She should be praised for a light and enjoyable Victorian tale, with a dash of fantasy.
