Novel: Shadows of the Lost Child

Would children crying keep you awake? Especially if the children were dead?

Shadows of the Lost Child - a novel and ghost story

A haunted house, a man with a past and a girl called Alice who can cross time.

Aleph and Alice can hear the ghosts scream.

Then Alice meets Tom who lives in the past, and the past and the present begin to collide… with fatal consequences.

This is a ghost story, and a tragedy, that happened over a century ago. And a mystery.

Can you solve it?

Inspired by the legends of York.

What people have said

A fascinating book taking the reader seamlessly from past to present and back again in what seems like a parallel universe. Based on her knowledge of York, Ellie Stevenson paints a vivid picture with characters whose lives are interconnected. This book would make a wonderful television screenplay. Clever, detailed and very imaginative.’ Janet Foden

An intriguing story told in two times zones 100 years apart, linked by a mystery and a time travelling girl. The book evokes a wonderful sense of place and is full of interesting characters… I didn’t see the twists coming at the end.’ B. Littlewood

This is a ghost story with a difference, because…no I won’t spoil the surprise. The plot is very cleverly and skillfully drip fed throughout the story keeping the reader hooked and wanting to know more.
It took a few chapters to get used to swapping from time zone to time zone but once you get used to that it works extremely well. Brilliant book, recommended.’ eBook Lover (Amazon review)
