Publisher's Summary

No matter how hard life is, humanity has the power to make it bearable -- or worse. Parliament of Rooks, the new historical paranormal novel in the award-winning Yorkshire Ghosts series, contrasts the beautiful, inspiring village of Haworth today with the slum -- or rookery -- it was during the industrial revolution: rife with disease, heartache, poverty, and child slavery in the mills. In 2017, life expectancy in the UK is 81. In 1848 Haworth, it was 22. Nine-year-old Harry Sutcliff hates working at Rooks Mill and is forever in trouble for running away to the wide empty spaces of the moors -- empty but for the song of the skylark, the antics of the rabbits, and the explorations of Emily Brontë. Bound together by their love of the moors, Emily and Harry develop a lasting friendship, but not everyone is happy about it -- especially Martha, Harry's wife. As Martha's jealous rages grow in ferocity, Harry does not realize the danger he is in. A hundred and fifty years later, this danger also threatens Verity and her new beau, William. Only time will tell if Verity and William have the strength to fight off the ghosts determined to shape their lives, or whether they will succumb to an age-old betrayal. The Yorkshire Ghost Stories are all stand-alone, complete books, and can be listened to in any order.

Absolutely gripping!!

Could not put this book down. Excellent insight into how it was for mill workers in Victorian times and a fantastic ghost story tying the past and the present.
