About the book

Clara has lived a life of solitude, home schooled under her mean uncle's strict regime . . . until now!

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.
