Clara has lived a life of solitude, home schooled under her mean uncle’s strict regime . . .
The day that Uncle abandons Clara, leaving her with nothing but a wedge of ‘guilt money’ and a half empty, crumbling manor house, she is determined to do things her way for a change. And when streetwise Peter turns up, with his rescue cat and a surprising array of knowledge, she is sure that between them they have everything they need to survive.
But the house is to be sold…
and Uncle has lied to Clara…
and nothing, NOTHING is as it seems.
