Reviews for The Grave Digger:

“This is going to be a perfect addition to my classroom! It's written at a middle school reading level but includes plenty of gruesome and fantastic details to keep the reader intrigued. It's historic and addresses an aspect of 19th-century history that isn't often shown in young adult fiction. My kids will love reading this one.”

“I don't read a lot of children's fiction but once I saw this cover I couldn't resist. Terrific cover and terrific little story. Not all is what it seems, more people are dying and Cap (our protagonist) needs to find out why before his loved ones do as well. A bit creepy in spots added as a bonus! Loved it!”

“The Grave Digger was a surprising read. I expected an adventure-filled suspenseful tale but the novel was much more than that. It was very informative with the way it painted the time period authentically. There was mystery and adventure, of course, both aspects which would attract middle-grade readers, but the story also tackled more serious issues in a thoughtful way. A very satisfying read.”

“Resurrectionists, or body snatchers as they were commonly known, were active during the 18th and 19th centuries. Bodies recently buried, were removed from their graves and given to medical schools for students to use to study anatomy. The Grave Digger tells the story of Cap, a young man who helps his father as a resurrectionist. Hard-pressed for cash, it was an easy, although dangerous, way for him and his father to raise money quickly. This was an interesting and informative story. The author tells an exciting and engaging tale in the correct historical context; a fun read that should entice young readers to learn more about the time period.”

“This story recounts some fairly heavy aspects of life in the 19th century: what those without money must do to survive, the restrictions on those of color. It also introduces one which kids have probably never heard of, grave robbing. These themes are woven together with the mystery in a way that made this story really very interesting. Also, I was very much drawn to the character of Cap. He is well defined as a young man who is smart, perceptive, and caring. He is aware of the problems that his family is facing, but has the courage to do what’s right in order to help them and his newfound friends.”

Reviews for The French Impressionist:

“With enough mystery to keep adults entertained, readers will not be able to put this down. Rosemary suffers from a speech issue but this enhanced the story instead of making it feel like a morality tale focused on accepting people with disabilities. The well-crafted storyline was excellent. Rosemary can come and live with me anytime. One of the best YA books of the year.”

“In this passionate heartwarming tale relish with full of emotions such as sorrow, fear, anger, surprise, joy, happiness, desire, guilty, etc. That’s why I indicate this as a battle of emotions. And Rosemary was able to unravel another mystery that buried nearly 5 decades. Overall, this was enjoyable, exciting and captivating reading for me.”

“I got to be one of the lucky beta readers for this book, and I can’t wait to see it in print! Rosemary is spunky and determined, in spite of her challenges. Rebecca Bischoff paints a vivid setting, and brings her characters to life. I can’t wait for everyone else to get to read it!”

“I rarely pick up books and start reading them immediately just because of a cover, but this happened with The French Impressionist. It was a “love at first sight” kind of thing that I knew I had to read and I’m glad I did since I ended up enjoying it.”

“I had never read a book about someone with a communication disability, so that was different and a bit enlightening. I was able to connect with the main character, Rosemary, due to her need to be heard.”

I found this story to be deeply moving and very compelling. The characters and the setting and the situations are unique and beautifully created by the author. I was very involved in this story from beginning to end, and I was rooting for the protagonist...she broke my heart and she inspired me.
