The Big House

By Helena McEwen

Published Jan 2010

Elizabeth can hardly accept that her brother James, her nursery soulmate and partner in crime, committed suicide, so when her sister Kitty dies too it is more than she can bear. As she wanders the large family mansion of her childhood – a haunting place of mystery, wonder and opulence – the memories of an apparently idyllic but secretly threatening past will not let her go.

Confronting at last the hidden fears from her early years, Elizabeth is able to find a ‘little thread’ that helps her make some sort of sense of the confusion of sadness, half-known truths and moments of happiness that embraced her whole family.
