Product description

Flame-haired Charity Delafield has grown up in a vast, isolated house – most of which she is forbidden to explore – by her strict, cold father. With only her kindly nurse, Rose, and her cat Mr Tompkins for company, she knows very little of the outside world – or of her own family’s shadowy past. What she does know is that she is NEVER to go outside unsupervised. And she is NEVER to over-excite herself, because of the mysterious ‘condition’ that she has been told she suffers from.

But Charity has a secret of her own. All her life, she has had the same strange dream – a dream of a dark corridor, hidden somewhere in the house. Then, one day, Charity stumbles across the corridor. It leads to a door . . . and suddenly she realises things are not quite what they seem.

    I think The Haunting Of Charity Delafield is a captivating story about a curios little girl who wants to find out more about her mysterious lost mother. I would recommend this to people who are aged 9+ and like mystery stories

    This book was a fantastic book to read, and when I read the first chapter I was straight away sucked into the atmosphere of the book, living with Charity Delafield, wincing when the kind maid Rose had brushed her hair every morning, and bubbling with anticipation when she went on exciting adventures with her friend Silas, the chimney sweep. I loved this book, and when I get the time, I sure am going to read it again. Also, I really liked how the ending was set, full of surprise and happiness. If anyone seems interested in this book, please pick it up and start reading, because I promise you that this book would bring joy to your eyes and fill you up with pleasure.

        I would recommend this book to everyone, but mostly who love history, because as this book is set in the past, it would fascinate those who enjoy learning about history the most...
