About the Author
Kathleen Andrews Davis lives in the mountains of rural Central Pennsylvania with her husband -- and a horde of white-tail dear who insist on annihilating her attempts at gardening. After a long and varied working career, including business writing, she and her husband renovated an old house into a bed and breakfast. "When we sold our lovely Victorian B&B after hard work and great satisfaction," she says, "it left a hole in my heart, and I found myself with an indistinguishable yearning. During my working career I enjoyed a good deal of technical writing. The little wheels in my head started turning. If I liked commercial writing, then why wouldn't I like creative writing?" This young adult series of books, Emerson's Attic, represents a satisfaction of the author's yearning and the desire to leave a legacy for her grandchildren and young readers everywhere.

The characters were believable in spite of the fact that they were time travelers. They were smart and able to put clues together to solve the mysteries they were entangled in. Emerson finds out a little more about herself in each adventure. I will stop at that to keep from giving away any spoilers.

The plot was equally engaging. Was well thought out and executed. The author did a fantastic job of pulling everything together at the end.
I loved Book Two of the EMERSON’s ATTIC series, SMOKE AND MIRRORS. No, just so you understand, let me repeat myself. I L-O-V-E-D this book. I couldn’t put it down. I would highly recommend this series to any middle grade girl (age 9-14). A boy could certainly read them, but I think they are written more to a girl’s interest.
This is a charming time travel theme adventure about two young girls, Emerson and Sarah, traveling back in time to the year 1905, where they’ve stepped into the shoes of Lily and Faith. Emerson is now Lily who’s a talented horse rider, a talent Emerson doesn’t possess; which is part of the consequences these two out of place time travelers have to deal with.
To solve the mysteries they’ve been become mixed up in Emerson and Sarah must use their 21st century intelligence to get through the “Smoke and Mirrors” which are confronting them so they can go back to their own time; which is why I feel the author couldn’t have selected a more appropriate title for this book.
While in this book, Ms. Davis has written a very inviting story which is bound to please its young readers by appealing to their interests. I feel the appeal has been limited to an upper middle grade audience of girls between the ages of 10 and 13, leaving any boy to look elsewhere for an interesting book to read; which is why I’m giving this book 4 STARS.
I personally loved this book and recommend it to 5th-9th graders. I was given this book to review for my mothers blog Reading by the Book. Thank you for the chance.
Review by children's author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne
This book will make any child (or adult, for that matter) who has ever wanted to run away with the circus feel like they are under the big top!
