1776 - Jennet is fifteen and alone. Isolated and vulnerable, she finds safety in the arms of local wool merchant, Richard Ramsgill. Or so she thinks.
Present Day - Emma and Dave’s hopes of a fresh start in their new home are shattered when Emma hears the bells of the old village church. But this is impossible, the village of Thores-Cross and its church were drowned decades ago by the waters of Thruscross Reservoir. Emma soon learns the dark significance of the bells: Jennet has woken.
Fans of Barbara Erskine, Katherine Clements and Susanna Kearsley will love this haunting and evocative, dual-timeline novel moving between the isolation and oppression of life in a 1700s Yorkshire moors village and present day.
