Not Hanging About At Hanging Rock

Review: Rift by Beverly Birch | Review | Guardian Unlimited Books

An admiring review of Rift by Bevelrly Birch. Marcus Sedgwick likes the way she "present(s) a strong and simple idea and do(es)n't hang about":

This is an intelligent piece of writing, one which brought back happy memories of Peter Dickinson's superb archaeological adventure A Bone from a Dry Sea. Birch, with the humility of a confident writer, pays her dues: she references Picnic at Hanging Rock at an appropriate moment, showing us that just because an idea has been explored once before does not mean it cannot also be taken in other, equally interesting directions.
