LoveReading View on The Robber Baron's Daughter

A superbly written haunting mystery linking two very different worlds from the Whitbread Award winning novelist Jamila Gavin. This immensely powerful novel is told from two perspectives; weaving the story of the young, privileged Nettie, with that of her tutor, Miss Kovachev, who has disappeared without warning from the adoring girl’s life and who, the story reveals, has a tragic past and has been trafficked in to England. With Nettie’s world shattering around her, she must get past the lies she’s been told by her parents and uncover a web of secrets that are shielding something very sinister in order to get to the truth. But what she finds is almost too cruel to bear.

The Robber Baron's Daughter Synopsis

From award-winning author Jamila Gavin comes "The Robber Baron's Daughter" - an unputdownable and haunting mystery. From the dark of the Bulgarian underworld to the grandeur of central London, what you don't know can't harm you. Or so Nettie believes. Nettie lives a privileged life in a mansion and she is adored by her parents. But her world shatters when her beloved tutor, Miss Kovachev, mysteriously disappears from the Round Tower. Does the ghost in the shadows of Nettie's house have something to do with it? Will spooky Great-Aunt Laetitia help her piece together the fragments? And why won't her parents tell her anything? Everyone has a facade. Everyone has a secret.
