Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Liz Konkel for Readers' Favorite:

M. Gail Grant has a charming style with sweet descriptions, often using old-fashioned phrases and language that perfectly fits the personalities of the children and the quaintness of the town. This is a town that seems idealistic on the surface with a nosy neighbor, hardworking farmers, and a baker that found his calling at a young age. But Grant crafts a darker and sinister underbelly to the town in a secret that the townspeople have banded together to keep hidden. This is the mystery the children strive to solve in an adventure that often reminds me of the classic mysteries of Nancy Drew or The Hardy Boys, except with demons and magic. Magdalena Gottschalk is a tale of adventure and friendship, courage and heroism, a coming of age story perfect for young adults. The delightful world and wonder of adventure will appeal to all ages.

M. Gail Grant's characters are very interesting and readers will enjoy Magdalena's feisty nature, she is an intelligent and curious girl. The characters are real and their reactions to situations taking place in their community will arouse the interest of readers. I enjoyed the way the themes are developed, especially friendship, magic, and teamwork. The setting is vividly portrayed and readers get a clear picture of Lily Brooke. The writing is excellent, featuring beautiful descriptions and dialogues that are plot-driven and that enhance character development. Magdalena Gottschalk: The Crooked Trail is a delightful read for young readers and adults who still reflect the beauty of childhood in their hearts.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite:

Magdalena Gottschalk: The Crooked Trail by M. Gail Grant is a mystical fantasy story and a very well written one at that. I was hooked from page one and couldn't put the book down. The characters are incredibly well developed and the story is wound around them intricately. It is an easy story to follow, full of excitement and plenty of twists and turns to keep you hooked and on edge. The action starts on page one and takes you on a rollercoaster journey of mystery, wizardry, demons and black magic, all leading you to an exciting conclusion that you won't be able to wait to get to. I enjoyed the story and I believe it is well aimed at its target audience.

From the Author

Writing this novel has been hands down one of the most thrilling experiences of my life! When I sat down to write, I didn't know the storyline from A to Z. Instead, I knew the ambiance I wanted to capture. I have always been a closet writer and my youngest daughter, age nine, is absolutely fascinated with anything regarding enchantment, wizardry, and magic. I wanted to bring together the excitement and adventure of that world, combined with every-day believable life, and lessons of teamwork, childhood adventures, and faith, above all else. 

The storyline is developed to keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering which way the adventure will lead. There are moments of friendship, moments of love, moments from the innocence of childhood, moments of believing and having faith in someone much larger than us, and moments of suspense. My hope is that each child, young adult, and adult, that ventures to take this journey with me, will finish the book feeling blessed to have known Magdalena, her friends, and especially, Lily Brooke.
