Summary:
Ellis is losing track of time…

After leaving her friends to move to a crumbling Scottish mansion, Ellis is overcome by anxiety and loneliness. Then she hears whispers in the walls…and finds herself whisked back in time to 1912.

At first, she feels like she’s finally home. But the past may not be as perfect as it seems – and is there more to hope for in the present than she first thought? (less)


Top Ten Reasons to Read The Whispers of Wilderwood Hall

It is a quick, addictive and lovely read.

The main protagonist, Ellis, is a very relatable character. She is also a wonderful character to follow.

The writing style flows really easily. Right from the first page, you get pulled into the story by the strong solid voice of Ellis.

The setting of the book is wonderful and really adds that extra dimension to the book. It brings with it such vivid imagery.

It was the perfect mix of past and present.

It was a magical story. That left you feeling hopeful and wonderful. It should definitely not be missed for this reason alone.

Every single character is unique and has a wonderfully interesting background that really comes across as the book continues on. You can tell Karen has worked really hard on this book.

The main protagonist, Ellis, suffers from bouts of anxiety and panic attacks and I love that it’s been dealt with in a very sensitive way.

It was really fascinating the way the book jumped between time periods and how what happened in the past, helped Ellis in the future. It was such a unique and interesting plot.

This book is just a really wonderful read that you should not miss.
