Sorrowline is published by Andersen Press and follows the adventures of 12-year-old Jack Morrow who discovers he is a Yard Boy – someone with the ability to travel back in time through Sorrowlines, the channels that connect every gravestone with the date of the person’s death.
“I’ve been fascinated with time travel since watching Doctor Who as a small child,” Bushnell explains. “The idea of going back in time is something I’ve always wanted to explore. In Sorrowline Jack finds himself in 1940s war-torn London, with his then-teenage grandfather, Davey, and together they discover a secret world of undead knights, mind readers and creatures from other realms. Jack’s mother died when he was eight, so the notion of trying to change his own past is something that eats away at him throughout the story.”
