Mrs. Murray's Home (The Piccadilly Street Series Book 3) Kindle Edition by Emily-Jane Hills Orford
Mrs. Murray's Home - Emily-Jane Hills Orford
...Another fun adventure with Mrs. Murray and the brownies. It was great to follow them, Mary and Granny across the ocean to Scotland. I liked meting new characters there and getting to know more about the Murray's.
The characters are all well-developed. It is easy to feel their emotions.
The story flows well from chapter to chapter and is easy to follow along.
The title and cover of the book are a great fit for the story.
I highly recommend this story to young and old. It is an awesome read and adventure.
I give this book a literary rating of 5/5

The Brownies were coming out of their daze. They glanced around, startled, taking in the situation. They noticed their queen, young and beautiful, the curse broken. A cheer erupted. “The witch is dead,” was the chant that rippled through the throngs of what once was Penelope’s Brownie army.
A chanting began from the rear of the troop and quickly picked up in volume. “Hail Hail, the witch is dead. Cause for celebration. In the Brownie nation. Hail Hail, we’re free at last. Time to celebrate freedom.”
“Sounds very much like, ‘Hail, hail, the gang’s all here. What the heck do we care? What the heck to we care?’” Granny laughed heartily, tapping her foot to the rhythmic chanting. The words were made up to suit the occasion, but everyone was catching on and soon there was dancing in the halls as the celebration escalated.
“I think we’re having a party.” Cousin George clapped his hands and joined in the fun.
Master Harry picked up the frozen remains of the witch and tucked it in his pocket. It was safer than leaving it untended on the floor where it could be trampled or, worse, stolen and restored to its original witchy form. He patted the pocket to assure himself that it was safe and then made his way over to where Mary and Granny still stood beside the staircase. “You’ll have to keep working on your spellcasting,” he spoke in a guarded voice. “I can only keep her like this for so long. Once you’re strong enough, once your power is fully controlled, we, you and I, can take care of Penelope for good.”
“What will you do with her? With it?” she nodded toward his pocket where she watched him place the frozen witch-iness.
“I’ll keep her safe and frozen until you’re ready. Nara will assist.”
