After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen year old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper-class England in the 1820s, is shattered when her brother mysteriously drowns. Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident. A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumour, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham. Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too? This Gothic murder mystery is filled with history, psychological suspense, and all the trappings of Downton Abbey.After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen year old Katherine Randolph.
