Emma Brown: Complete & Unabridged
When Charlotte Bronte died in 1855, she left behind the start of a new novel. Now, almost 150 years later, Clare Boylan has returned to this intriguing beginning and turned it into an astonishing story of mystery, atmosphere and suspense. The arrival of Conway Fitzgibbon at Fuchsia Lodge with his daughter Matilda is a source of delight to the headmistress, Miss Wilcox. The school is eager for new pupils, particularly one so finely dressed and boasting a father who is 'quite the gentleman.' But as Christmas approaches and Miss Wilcox enquires about arrangements for the holidays, she is in for a shock. Conway Fitzgibbon, like the address he left behind, does not exist. So who is the mysterious Matilda?
