Jumping at Shadows is a truly delightful read. Helen’s tale is of two young girls who set out accidently on a quest into an unknown world of mystery, magic and intrigue. The characters are loveable and identifiable for those of the same age or for those of us reminiscing our own childhood. Helen’s crisp style of writing makes the story fast moving and captivating. Her way of giving the reader just enough information to let their own imagination sore and thereby being able to have some personal ownership of the story is a rare gift.
