Young Bessy Buckley finds work as a maidservant on a country estate in the Scottish lowlands in 1863. She soon finds that her cosy berth hides some very strange and sinister goings on. Her mistress is not what she seems. A humorous modern take on the gothic mystery complete with attics and asylums. What will last in your mind though is Bessy's voice ; her wit and energy make this a unique page turner.
