Waterstones Says

Howel’s masterful story of a house full of clocks sparkles with wit and suspense. One of the wealthiest men in England is in need of a clock-winder, and when Helena’s father gets the job, her life changes overnight. They move into a grand house with one hundred clocks, ghostly apparitions and many mysteries, but only one rule: the clocks must never stop. Set in beautiful Cambridge, The House of One Hundred Clocks oozes atmosphere and serves up a delicious enigma with a gothic twist.

June, 1905.

Helena and her parrot, Orbit, are swept off to Cambridge when her father is appointed clock-winder to one of the wealthiest men in England. There is only one rule: the clocks must never stop. But Helena discovers the house of one hundred clocks holds many mysteries; a ghostly figure, strange notes and disappearing winding keys...

Can she work out its secrets before time runs out?
