An enchanting mystery kept hidden for hundreds of years...

1700s

Rowan Caswell leaves her village to work at the home of an English silk merchant. Very soon, she finds herself thrust into a dangerous world, where her talent for herbs and healing starts to attract unwanted attention.

Present Day

Thea Rust
arrives at an exclusive boarding school in the British countryside to look after the first intake of girls in its history. She is to stay with them in the Silk House, a converted silk factory from the 18th century, where the shadows hide secrets waiting to be discovered...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Exquisitely written, this vivid story with three very distinct voices may just bewitch you * Woman's Weekly *
Weaving seamlessly between past and present, and featuring the powerful narrative voices of three very different women, Nunn delivers an atmospheric stunner... a multi-layered and suspense-packed ghost story full of shapes, shadows, ethereal music, bumps in the night and restless spirits. * Lancashire Post *
