An absorbing mystery story, really evocative of the Yorkshire Moors and the mill. I loved the character of Billy Shaw! The story kept me engrossed and flipping the pages right to the end
The Companion is beautifully written and so evocative of time and place, you can almost hear the roar of the roller skates at Potter's Pleasure Palace as you turn the page. Billy Shaw leaps off the moors into our hearts while Jasper Harper lurks ominously at his shoulder throughout this haunting debut. The strange goings on at High Hob are vividly brought to life by Dunnakey's wonderfully crafted novel. If you thought the Brontes were the most intriguing literary family in Yorkshire, wait until you meet the Harpers.
Sarah writes with warmth, wit and wisdom AND she makes you want to turn the page. A rare combination.
An engaging and totally compelling mystery
Utterly absorbing...a great Yorkshire tale

Utterly charming, wonderfully creepy and rich with mystery. The Companion is a rare treat.
