Full of hidden chambers, and some of them are haunted . . .part thriller, part love story, wholly beguiling. I was glued to every page

When the eight year old daughter of an Oxford College Master vanishes in the middle of the night, police turn to the Scottish nanny, Dee, for answers. As Dee looks back on her time in the Master’s Lodging – an eerie and ancient house – a picture of a high achieving but dysfunctional family emerges: Nick, the fiercely intelligent and powerful father; his beautiful Danish wife Mariah, pregnant with their child; and the lost little girl, Felicity, almost mute, seeing ghosts, grieving her dead mother. . .

Roaming Oxford’s secret passages and hidden graveyards, Magpie Lane explores the true meaning of family, and what it is to be denied one.
