The Lovereading4Kids comment
Prize-winning Cathy MacPhail will send a chill through her readers in haunting novel of how a past evil effects the present. Tyler is thrilled to be spending time with her aunt tidying up the picturesque cottage they have inherited from her grandmother. But there’s something sinister in her bedroom. A cold shadow lurks in the corner, the door shuts without warning and there are spiders all over the window… Tyler knows something very, very nasty happened in the past. Can she go back and put it right?
Secret of the Shadows by Cathy MacPhail
A ghostly new thriller from the brilliant Cathy MacPhail, featuring Tyler Lawless, heroine to the unlawfully dead.
Tyler is staying in her grandmother's cottage to help tidy it up after her death. Why does the spare bedroom that Tyler sleeps in always seem cold, despite bright sunshine? Why does she feel the presence of a frail old lady who is nothing like her grandmother? And why does she sense that the same old lady is asking for her help? Perhaps Tyler will need to use her gifts to help save somebody from a terrible fate ...
