Latest Reviews for Rebecca & the Spiral Staircase 

Rosetta Yorke
‘Rebecca & the Spiral Staircase’ is a great read for teenagers, young adults, and anyone who still views the natural world through wondering eyes!
I love Rebecca! She has such a vibrant, inquisitive personality, sense of humour, & strength of character, but she’s also flawed & fallible, which makes her feel real. The story itself is great. The whole concept of the spiral staircase with its locked doors is awesome & works brilliantly. I’ve always thought there was something magical/mystical about spiral staircases anyway & the author has admirably captured both those qualities here.
Although this story works perfectly well as a standalone book, with a satisfying conclusion, I was delighted to discover Stephen M Davis has written a sequel – I can’t wait to discover more of Rebecca’s story.
I thoroughly recommend this book! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! 🙂

This book had me captured from the beginning. It is so easy to read. If your like me and read in bed it is great having chapters that are short enough to get to the end of before you sleep. Nothing more infuriating than finishing mid chapter! I felt I was in Rebecca’s shoes as I read it. The way it is written makes it easy to picture just how the characters feel and act. I was willing her in to the next bit of her adventure. It wove a tale of child like curiosity and teenage inquisitiveness and independence. Rebecca has guts but it also smart beyond her years. If you want a story with some unexpected twists and turns, that is compulsive and uplifting then this is for you. A great read for teenagers and adults with an open mind. Looking forward to the next instalment!

This is a modern treasure-box of curiosity, time and history, all connected to an intrepid, young woman named Rebecca.

“Bex” is destined to seek the answer to the mystery surrounding the manor house she’s just moved into with her brother, mother and father. Her character was the most developed as, an artist, a dreamer and believers in magical, woodland creatures.

It is a classic mystery, written in the style of the original Nancy Drew series. I was delighted when it produced a surge of nostalgia for this wonderful, story-telling style.

A moody, crumbling manor house setting in the British countryside is one of my favorite places to visit in a story, while the ghostly mist on the lake enhanced my experience. Then meeting the troublesome brother Bex openly calls “Twit” made me laugh out loud, sibling rivalry- oh yes! So many other thoughtful details brought me closer to the main character with a light, but gothic touch of mystery and the unknown. I was unsure until the very end how Bex would handle the eerie and strange, events leading up to her incredible discovery of what was really happening.

I highly recommend this lovely story to readers of all ages, especially to those who have always wondered what it might be like to unlock an ancient door and realize there is far more to the mysteries of life, than any of us might possibly imagine.
