A superb new story-teller in the compelling Gothic tradition that has enriched England’s literature
For two hundred years, Linden Howard, has triumphed in this novel about a sixteen year old girl abruptly torn from 19th century London and sent to the great Tremannion House in the desolate Welsh Beacons.
Sara Pryce’s mother has died, and her new life with her wealthy grandfather is at once clouded with ominous warnings and sinister accidents.. Her companion-maid dies in a mysterious mishap, a sealed envelope left by Saeah’s mother disappears, she hears rumors that her grandfather is hated and feared as a “murderer” – and then attempts on he own life begins.
Linden Howard’s tale is vibrant with the classic ingredients of the historical novel of love and menace – all cunningly prepared and served up for the reader’s terror and delight.
