A dual-timeline historical novel, Jennet moves between 1930s Yorkshire and the present day, following the residents of Thores-Cross, a remote moorland village, in their fight for survival against a vengeful spirit. Jennet will not stop until she has what she wants - life for her children. Jennet is perfect for fans of Nicola Cornick, Barbara Erskine, Susanna Kearsley and Pamela Hartshorne.
'Jennet will have your heart and your fear in equal measure'
Yorkshire is in the grip of a heatwave, and Thruscross Reservoir has dried up to reveal the remains of the drowned village of Thores-Cross beneath.
Playing in the peaty mud which coats the valley floor, four-year-old Clare Wainwright finds an old inkpot, and can't wait to show it to her best friend, Louise. But when Emma sees it, her reaction is shocking, and both families are plunged into their worst nightmares.
Emma knows what the inkpot portends:
Jennet has woken.
Now she wants the children.
About the Author
Her first Yorkshire Ghost Story - THE HAUNTING OF THORES-CROSS - won the Silver Medal for European Fiction in the prestigious 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards in New York, whilst her Valkyrie novel, DEAD RECKONING, was long-listed in the 2011 MSLEXIA novel competition.
Originally a financial advisor, a sailing injury left Karen with a chronic pain condition (although she did take the European ladies title despite the injury!). Writing has given her a new lease of - and purpose to - life, and she is currently working on a sequel to Parliament of Rooks: Haunting Brontë Country, as well as the next Pendle Witch story.
