The Shade of Hettie Daynes

Written by Robert Swindells

The Shade of Hettie Daynes Synopsis

If you expect to see a ghost, you see a ghost... That's what Bethan tells herself when her brother Harry takes her to see the ghost at the old reservoir. But she really can see it: a pale figure floating over the water, one finger pointing downwards. Local legend says that the ghost is Hettie Daynes, an ancestor of their family, who vanished over a hundred years ago. If so, what does she want? And why is she appearing now? Harry and Bethan and their friends Rob and Alison are determined to find out! A deliciously shivery ghost tale from multi award-winning author Robert Swindells.
