The Wickford Doom

The Wickford Doom is a WWII-set chiller. Harry and his mother move out of London lured by the promise of an inheritance – the manor house at Wickford Hall on the coast of Suffolk. It turns out to be a cruel joke, the manor house having long since disappeared beneath the sea. Or so it seems. There is dark magic at work at Wickford Hall – and its coming for Harry…

The 1940s setting gives added moral weight to questions about duty and freedom. Best read with the lights on! – LoveReading4Kids
