The House at Ladywell

A novel by

A hare carved in stone, and the scent of flowers in a house full of echoes - can Freya's inheritance help her to leave the past behind?

'Had I gone completely crazy that first day? To open the door, take one astonished look round, and decide on the spot that I would live there? To fall in love with a house?'

When Freya Gibson inherits an old, run-down property she has no idea she is the last in a long line of redoubtable women, including the Tudor nun who built the house. Unknown to Freya, these women, over centuries, fought with whatever weapons
came to hand - deception, endurance, even murder - to preserve their home and family.

Freya falls in love with the house, but her inheritance includes an enigmatic letter telling her to 'restore the balance' of the Lady's Well. Besides this, the house seems to be haunted by the scent of flowers.

In the past, the Lady's Well was a place of healing, and Freya soon feels safe and at home, but she has demons of her own to conquer before she can accept the happiness that beckons.
