On top of the Yorkshire Moors, in an isolated spot carved out of a barren landscape, lies White Windows, a house of shadows and secrets. Here lives Marcus Twentyman, a hard-drinking but sensitive man, and his sister, the brisk widow, Hester.

When runaway Annaleigh first meets the Twentymans, their offer of employment and lodgings seems a blessing. Only later does she discover the truth. But by then she is already in the middle of a web of darkness and intrigue, where murder seems the only possible means of escape...

Already a Sunday Times bestselling author with her first novel, The Vanishing confirms Sophia Tobin as a rising star. Stunning, twisting historical fiction for fans of Jessie Burton and Tracy Chevalier.

“Secrets, servitude and psychosis.”

When a book arrives with comparisons to ‘Jane Eyre’, ‘Fingersmith’, ‘The Miniaturist’ and ‘Burial Rites’, it is certain to grab my attention. Add in the deeply familiar landscape of the Yorkshire Moors and I’m sold... More
