Past and present collide in the home of the Brontë sisters in this engrossing and suspenseful dual-timeline novel.

1838 - Nine-year-old Harry hates working on the mill floor, and flees to the moors above Haworth whenever he can escape the deadly, thundering machinery. There he meets Emily Brontë, and a lifelong friendship is born. Trouble ensues when Harry marries, as Martha finds jealousy a hard demon to exorcise. The consequences are tragic.

2016 - Newly divorced, Verity is looking forward to her new life running a guest house in Haworth. She soon realises it is haunted - not only by the ghosts of her own past, but by those of Haworth. And Haworth's ghosts can be tenacious.

As Verity and her new beau, William, are caught up in Harry and Martha's battles, their own lives hang in the balance in a horrific fight between past and present.


Fans of Bella Ellis, Barbara Erskine and Stacey Halls will love this haunting timeslip novel moving between the harsh realities of village life in Emily Brontë's Haworth and present day.
