Featured Book

Book Cover The House With 46 Chimneys by Ken Lussey (10 November 2020). Life changes dramatically for Kaleb, Jude and Sequoia when they move to live with their aunt in a rural corner of central Scotland. It’s the beginning of April 2020, the early days of the coronavirus lockdown. Three local children they meet – in a socially distanced way – draw them into a two-century old family mystery involving the haunting of the nearby ruins of Dunmore Park. Do they try to right a wrong that was done in 1828, a wrong that has had consequences ever since? Or is doing so simply too dangerous?
