book | 2013
UK & Canada → Constable & Robinson
On the outskirts of Nuneaton in Ansley Common stands Hatters Hall, a dark forbidding place, once a home for the mentally insane. Hatters Hall stands empty now.Some of its windows are boarded up; others stare like empty eyes onto the tangled overgrown gardens. The grounds surrounding the Hall one rang with the cries of the poor demented souls that were committed there. Now there is only silence, although the locals, who shun the place, swear that sometimes at night the screams can still be heard.On a rainy dismal day in 1857, Maria Mundy arrives at Hatters Hall, not as an inmate but as a worker. There she is ordered to care for Isabelle Montgomery, the daughter of an influential land owner and as their lives became entwined the life Maria had known is destined to change for all time...
