“a story full of suspense, adventure and the threat of sudden, unrestrained violence.” Check out this wonderful review of my latest book by historian Sharon Bennett Connolly!
For generations, stories have been told about the ruined old house in the marsh outside Wakefield. Stories of hidden treasure, sinister night-time cries, and ghostly figures doomed to haunt the lonely estate for all eternity as punishment for some terrible crime.
