Happiness – happiness that has passed, never to return – can be as painful as sadness.”

“You’re nobody’s doorway but your own, and the only one who gets to tell you how your story ends is you.”

SYNOPSIS:

Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children
No Solicitations
No Visitors
No Quests

Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.

But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.

No matter the cost.

No ARC copies and two or three foreign authors who are having their book signing.
