Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two orphaned children struggle to survive on their own in 19th century England. By the author of "The Wolves of Willoughby Chase."

Synopsis:

Now, back in print, the engaging and suspenseful British fantasy by one of Englands most imaginative storytellers.

Lucas Bell is lonely and miserable at Midnight Court, a vast, brooding house owned by his intolerable guardian, Sir Randolph Grimsby. When a mysterious carriage brings a visitor to the house, Lucas hopes hes found a friend at last. But the newcomer, Anna Marie, is unfriendly and spoiled—and French. Just when Lucas thinks things cant get any worse, disastrous circumstances force him and Anna Marie, parentless and penniless, into the dark and unfriendly streets of Blastburn.
