The Last Duchess

UPSTAIRS AND DOWNSTAIRS, DANGER IS LURKING...

Pattern is only thirteen, but is already rising through the ranks at Mrs Minchin's Academy of Domestic Servitude. Fate intervenes when she is packed off to the small and secretive Duchy of Elffinberg, to serve as lady's maid to the lately orphaned Grand Duchess.

Pattern's young mistress is excitable and paranoid, yet despite their differences the two girls forge an unlikely friendship that quickly turns to a battle for survival. For picture-perfect Elffinberg hides an extremely dark and deadly secret...

"A mystery with magic and friendship at its heart and a sharp dagger in its tail."
The Book Trust

"A terrific story of courage, friendship, courtly intrigue and magic."
