Their days are full of adventures ­- horse riding, camping in Lantern Waste, making huts, canoeing and swimming in the river, archery … and all the while, Milly’s menagerie of animals continues to grow. But one thing is missing. Milly dreams of milking her very own cow. However when the time finally comes, Milly discovers that training a house cow is not as easy as she thought it would be…

“You HAVE to read this book. I never thought it would be possible to have another book as good as Where Lions Roar at Night.  Now I can’t wait for the next in the series!” - Bonnie (11)

“Hello Rosie and family!! I received ‘WHERE  ARROWS FLY’ today. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about starting it! My hobby might be collecting ‘The Barn Chronicles’, they look so cool. You are the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeest  author EVER! Thank you for signing my new book. I love your handwriting! Love, Moana C.”

“We have just loved the first chapters, laughed over Josiah’s “spider’ legs, felt sad about John the Baptist and winced over a broken tailbone and swollen eyes. We look forward to reading on and yet we don’t want it to end.” Janet

“My little Timothy, 6yrs, has LOVED having this read to him every night. We are so thankful for this book, its inspired his love of literature and has been a wonderful blessing in our homeschooling journey. Thankyou!!!”

Thankyou SOOO much for writing Where Lions Roar at Night, and Where Arrows fly.  I think your books are the BEST I have EVER read!
I am reading it for the second time and I started it yesterday! They are full of fun,adventure,celebrations,broken legs,and heaps more!
I would LOVE to live in a barn like that and live on that property with a river,animals,swings,eels and every thing else! Iwould also love to have all those adventures. You are definitly my favourite author. I was sad when I finished the book but I was SO happy when I saw …To Be Continued!” ~ Aria, 10

“dear rosie boom my name is lillie and i am six years old.my mum and I read your book and i really enjoyed it. its the best book i have ever read. i loved it so much i am going to read it again. please make another one,and please dont stop making them.” ~ Lillie, 6

 Your books are winners! I’ve been devouring them over and over again, and every time I do, they seem better than last time! I’ve always thought books were like angels, but these are by far WAY past being the best! I know, that if the Boom family had never moved into Narnia and written about it, I would be living a boring life.

These are the captivating stories of the exciting (and tragic) lives of the Boom family as they thrive living in a 90 year old barn. They battle ‘hundred year storms’ , make metal daggers, and who knows what’s going to happen next? There’s no telling.” ~ Moana 9

Hi  Rosie! I like your book! I’m Isaac. We live in FRANCE. I am 9. My favorite part  is when you get the rooster and when Milly writes: “DEAR ROOSTER, I AM SORRY DAD NEEDS TO CUT YOUR HEAD OFF.” ~ Isaac 9
