Product description

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 …
