Summary

Elizabeth is a thoughtful, quiet girl, ever cautious and just a little bit timid. Zenobia is everything Elizabeth would like to be, and more: bold and unafraid and wildly imaginative. The problem is ... only Elizabeth can see Zenobia.

When they arrive at their new home, the imposing Witheringe House, Zenobia is convinced it's haunted and eagerly tries to contact a spirit presence. Elizabeth is relieved when her efforts come to nothing.

But then this dark and foreboding manor begins to reveal some extraordinary secrets...

Shortlisted for a major Australian children's writing prize, this beautiful novel is about finding courage, about friendship, about the power of the imagination. With all the hallmarks of a children's classic, this would sit on the shelf between Neil Gaiman's Coraline and Robin Stevens's Murder Most Unladylike. Jessica Miller is an outstanding new talent.
