Product Description

What happens when you bury an angel?

It’s 1347. Fifteen-year-old Will, an orphan boy, is living at Crowfield Abbey. Sent into the forest to gather wood, he instead rescues a fantastical creature from a trap – a hob, who tells Will a dark secret. Somewhere in the forest behind the abbey is a grave. And buried deep in the snow is an angel. But how can an angel die? What has it to do with the monks of the Abbey? When two hooded strangers arrive at Crowfield, asking questions about the angel’s grave, Will is drawn into a world of dangerous Old Magic, where good and evil forces are unleashed… An atmospheric fantasy-mystery set in an intriguing medieval world, told through the eyes of a boy and a magical creature, a hob.

“A real page-turner that belongs in the same dark place as The Spook’s Apprentice.” Joseph Delaney, bestselling author

“An exciting new talent in children’s fantasy.” The Independent

“Captivating… absolutely perfect to curl up with” The Times

Pat Walsh

Pat Walsh, author of The Crowfield Curse, was the runner up in the 2008 Times Chicken House Writing Competition. She was born in a haunted house in Kent and spent her early years in West Africa and Ireland, before her family settled in Leicestershire. At the age of nine, Pat decided she wanted to be an archaeologist, going on her first dig at twelve. Now fully trained, she’s still digging to this day! However, her first love is writing and she finds her inspiration in mythology and folklore, and in Britain’s rich historical heritage. She now lives in Bedfordshire with her husband and two children.

The sequel to The Crowfield Curse entitled The Crowfield Demon is released in April 2011.
