Far away from her friends and familiarity, she finds waves of anxiety rolling in and threatening to capsize her. But when she finds herself whisked back to the world of 1912 where she meets lonely servant girl Flora, Ellis finally feels like she's home. But living in the past might not be as perfect as it seems... and is there more to hope for in the present than she first thought? A stunning new novel from much-loved author Karen McCombie, The Whispers of Wilderwood Hall will take you from the heart of the highlands to the top deck of the Titanic.
