A thrilling Gothic tale from the author of Our Castle by
the Sea, shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize.
'Told
in deft and luminous language, The Ghost
of Gosswater is storytelling at its very best.' Kiran Millwood
Hargrave, author of THE GIRL OF INK & STARS

'Family secrets, a ghost girl and a forbidding manor house that
goes up in smoke ... You can't help rooting for Agatha in this spooky,
addictive tale of friendship and family.' THE TIMES
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 ...
PRAISE

balanced between readability and poetry' GUARDIAN

in so many ways!' EMMA CARROLL
