9780099451334: Set in Stone

When Samuel Godwin, a young and naive art tutor, accepts a job with the Farrow family at Fourwinds, their majestic home, little does he expect to come across such a web of secrets and lies. His two tutees are as different as chalk and cheese - the beautiful younger sister Marianne, full of flightiness and nervous imagination, and Juliana, controlled and sad. With their governess, Charlotte Agnew, Samuel begins to uncover slowly the horrifying truth behind Juliana's sadness and Marianne's emotional fragility. Their discoveries change their perception of life at Fourwinds for ever and none of their lives will ever be the same again.

With her usual brilliance and ease, Linda Newbery has written a haunting and faultlessly plotted novel with characters that leap of the page and stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.

Review:

"I found myself bathing in the wonderful descriptions . . . Newbery writes with grace and immediacy" (Vivien Hamilton Daily Telegraph)

"A gothic romance dealing with the most taboo subject of all . . . Newbery has created a climactic period story, compelling in its description and psychological drama . . . the relationship between art and life is starkly framed" (Elaine Williams TES Teacher)

"Unfolds with horrific credibility and total suspense" (Gill Roberts Carousel)

"This novel calls to mind the writings of the Bronte sisters . . . Despite or maybe because of the author seeming so unconcerned with current trends, this book works on every level. The plot is full of twists, the charcters are multi-dimensional, and the atmosphere of that grand Victorian house, with all its intrigue and hierarchy, is electric. Set in Stone is a gripping page-turner for children and adults alike" ( Glasgow Herald)

"This is a plot-driven, exciting thriller" (Audrey Baker Inis)

Book Description:

A chilling novel set at the end of the nineteenth century, where love, possession, ambition and desire exist side by side . . .
