Waterstones Says

The bestselling author of The Leviathan delivers another exquisitely crafted slice of historical crime, as a young governess arrives at her posting on the Welsh-English border determined to learn the truth about the tragic fate of her predecessor. 

Signed Edition with sprayed edges - a Standard Edition is also available

Deep in the woods, something is stirring...

When Miss Catherine Symonds arrives to take up a position as governess at remote Locksley Abbey in the foothills of the Black Mountains, where England bleeds into Wales, she is apprehensive.

It is not the echoing, near empty house with its skeleton staff that frightens her, nor the ancient woods that surround the Abbey or even the dogs that the owner, Sir Rowland, encourages to stalk the grounds, baying for blood. It is Catherine herself who fears scrutiny: her reference and very identity are fraudulent. She is travelling in disguise to investigate the fate of the last governess at the house, who took her own life out in the woods. For that governess was Catherine's own sister, but until now she had believed Emily had died many years before, when they were just children...

In Rosie Andrew's extraordinary follow up to the bestselling The Leviathan - one of the biggest debuts of 2022 - an isolated forest becomes the unsettling, beguiling backdrop to a tale of myths, memory and murder...

“The woods hold a secret......”

Deep in the woods, something is stirring. Something that has been dormant for far too long. It is hungry. It is searching. It shall not rest.

“A nice middle of the road historical fiction book”

I was really attracted to "The Puzzle Wood" by Rosie Andrew - the cover, the description, the name... sadly this book didn't meet my expectations. I enjoyed the current narrative which sat nicely... More
