5* Review by Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite
Girl in a Golden Cage is a splendid entry into the Gold Gift Series by Lucy Branch, a story with a strong, relatable protagonist. Francesca Milliardo is set for a promising future in the contemporary art world and she has succeeded in creating great connections that can help make her dream come true. Her visit to Italy from the UK plunges her into mysterious happenings that could change the course of her life. While in her father's mansion in Milan, she starts experiencing something very mysterious. The world of art and the wonderful experience in Milan could have been very soothing to her, but the out-of-body experiences leave her with many more questions than answers. Can she discover the truth? Can she survive it?
This is a beautiful story that offers a wonderful blend of the paranormal and mystery, a fast-paced story with a protagonist that will hold the reader's attention at all times. I enjoyed the beautiful settings and how the author communicates her knowledge of art. The prose is compelling and it is filled with emotional and psychological insights that are as arresting as the characters. Francesca is a complex character and although she has extraordinary experiences, it is not hard for the reader to relate to her. The conflict that animates this story is strong and it is developed at multiple levels. I loved the way the attraction the protagonist has for her father's gorgeous assistant is presented. Girl in a Golden Cage is a fun read, with great prose elements masterfully integrated into the story. Lucy Branch has created a gripping, easy-to-read story that will have readers captivated and utterly entertained.

4* Review from Whispering Stories Book Blog
Curiosity they say kills the cat, but at least the cat finds some answers before it loses its life.
This is a story of a girl named Francesca Domenico who travels from London to Milan to spend some time with her father. She begins to enjoy the luxury and comfort of her father's home, only to discover some strange happenings within the beautiful walls of the house.
Due to her inquisitive nature, she starts searching for answers. The answers she finds lead her to more questions, which it turn gets her into trouble trying to figure out the truth. What will become of her?
Girl In A Golden Cage is an interesting book full of twists and unexpected turns that captivates you completely. The characters all possess their own unique qualities, this is what makes the book stand out.
This story is suspense filled, combined with a beautiful combination of humour and mystery. I really enjoyed it and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

From the Author

    Girl In A Golden Cage is a standalone story in the Gold Gift Series. The
    main themes are magical realism, mystery and romance, but the main
    character's lifelong struggle with migraine is central to the story.
    Magical Realism and migraine may not be obvious partners to some, but they
    seem a natural fit to me. Migraine has been muscling in on my life since I
    was old enough to toddle, so why wouldn't it show up as a principle player
    in my latest novel? Both my mother and husband have
    had lifelong battles with migraine. I've only been a bystander, but the
    condition is so familiar that it had to have its own story.

    My main character, Francesca, hears screaming in her father's hallway.
    Screaming so terrible, she's sure that someone is being murdered, but she
    can't get up to investigate. She's nine hours into a migraine that began
    with aura symptoms, and matures into the kind of pain that should only be
    reserved for the dentist chair with no anaesthetic.

    As a child, I viewed migraines as a quasi-bogeyman. They scared me.
    Completely unseen, they had the power to reduce the strongest pillar of my
    life, my mum, into a quivering wreck. Driving, she might pull off the road
    with an emergency-stop-suddenness and lay her head on the wheel saying, 'I
    can't see.' It was the dazzling symptoms that caught my imagination early
    on. Where had her sight gone to? Was she seeing something else?

    In the novel, Francesca is staying with her father in Milan, and it's here
    that she sees her dazzling symptoms begin to morph. This enables her to
    witness something she wishes she hadn't, involving her father, but can she
    rely on her own testimony when her symptoms are so out of control?

    For my husband, who seldom has weeks without migraines, strain in its many
    forms often tips the balance. He tries to negotiate life avoiding invisible
    stress-mines that could trigger the next blast, but of course, that's

    Secrets are always potions of stress; they make the mind swirl. I wanted to
    show how Francesca's determination to seek the truth is complicated by her
    symptoms, and how hard it is to stay on track when tension makes tipping
    over the edge that much more likely.

    I've worked for years in the art world and that's why I couldn't help
    bringing an aspect of that into the story too. I came across an Anthony
    Gormley sculpture, Feeling Material IX, many years ago. The minute I saw
    it, it seemed to me a perfect piece of migraine art. Made only with wire,
    it's form is so simple and yet the outer chaos seems to represent what's
    going on inside the figure's head. When I was beginning to draft ideas for
    the book, I knew that this statue had to be a central symbol.

    Francesca is an artist. She has the kind of gift with a pencil that most of
    us can only wonder about. I wanted her to be creative: to have a mind that
    might be malleable enough to show her a place that teeters on the brink of
    possibility. The idea that there could be a way to slip the grip of
    migraine seemed a seductive plot line.

    Fiction is one of the few ways others can experience someone else's
    perspective. I haven't had to endure the frightful pain of migraine, but
    I've been a close observer of the condition for so long that I feel I'm
    equipped to draw its likeness, and as all writers do, take a few creative
    liberties with the subject matter.
