We're incredibly pleased to officially release Michelle's latest endeavour, The House on March Lane.
Full to the brim with mystery and ghostly goings-on, The House on March Lane is the second children's fiction novel from Barry author Michelle, and with an beautifully created cover by the wonderfully talented illustrator Hannah Peck, we're proud to release this book to you!
With a cover that pulls you in to the mystery that lies behind the door, you won't be able to resist opening the book and taking that first step in to the story.
In 1836, Harriet’s papa, a ship’s officer on HMS Beagle, returns from a long journey at sea. On his arrival home, Harriet and her friend Lily become involved in a dangerous secret with tragic consequences.
Almost two centuries later, Flora’s best friend Archie experiences a ghostly encounter at her dad’s reclamation and salvage yard.
The haunting takes the two friends on a detective adventure with a difference, and leads them to an unexpected and supernatural discovery.
Flora and Archie & Harriet and Lily’s lives are soon entwined in a way that they could never have imagined possible.
The House on March Lane follows Michelle's first novel Silent Mountain, also published by Candy Jar Books. The story followed the adventures of Jack Jupiter, a hero with a difference. Readers who enjoyed Silent Mountain have been waiting for Michelle's return to children's fiction, and The House on March Lane is absolutely Michelle back with a bang.
