Synopsis

The House on March Lane by Michelle Briscombe

In 1836, Harriet's papa, a ship's office 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 180 years later, Flora's best friend Archie experiences a ghostly encounter at her dad's reclamation and salvage yard. The haunting takes two friends on a detective adventure with an unexpected and supernatural difference.

Flora and Archie, Harriet and Lily's lives are soon entwined in a way that they could never have imagined possible.
