    I’ve been having a lot of fun and also a little anguish this week choosing my ten favourite historical novels for young readers for the Guardian Children’s Book Website.  Do visit the site to find out more. These lists are inevitably distinctly personal, and of course I’d love to know what you think of my choices.  Well, that’s as long as you love the books as much as I keep reading



"A mesmerising portrait of a family unravelling" THE TIMES (Best historical fiction in 2018)

"Powerful, intense and beautiful" HISTORICAL NOVEL REVIEW

"This tense, evocative, richly-imagined novel conjures the voices of a strange time and place, and makes them universal" EMMA DARWIN

"A wonderful book" CAROL DRINKWATER

"A fantastic historical fiction debut" THE BOOKSELLER

"Syson brings history alive" THE OBSERVER
