The Ghost of Gosswater

The Lake District, 1899

The Earl is dead and cruel Cousin Clarence has inherited everything.

Twelve-year-old Lady Agatha Asquith is cast out of Gosswater Hall to live in a tiny, tumbledown cottage with a stranger who claims to be her father.

Aggie is determined to discover her real identity, but she is not alone on her quest for the truth.

On the last day of the year, when the clock strikes midnight, a mysterious girl of light creeps through the crack in time; she will not rest until the dark, terrible secrets of the past have been revealed …

Our Review Panel says...

When Agnes is sent away from Gosswater Hall to live with the father she never knew, she embarks on a hunt for her true identity. This historical mystery is beautifully written and really did keep me guessing right until the end!
