Inhaltsangabe zu "The Shadow Hour"
It was in the shadow hours of deepest night that this tapestry of lies fell to rags ...Harriet Jenner is just twenty-one when she walks through the gates of Fenix House. Reeling from a personal tragedy, she doesn't expect her new life as a governess to be easy. But she certainly does not foresee the spell Fenix House will cast. Almost fifty years later, Harriet's granddaughter Grace follows in her footsteps. For Grace, raised on Harriet's spellbinding stories, Fenix House is a fairy tale; a magical place suspended in time. But the now-faded grandeur of the mansion soon begins to reveal the holes in Harriet's story and Grace finds herself in a place of secrets and shadows.

Kate's first novel, The Girl in the Photograph published in January 2015. Kate is now a freelance writer and lives in the Cotswolds where she is currently working on her third novel.
