Murder in the Family
previous next   Ekstasis Editions

Award-winning author Heather Spears recreates the atmosphere of Victorian Scotland as she cracks the silence surrounding a murdered Aunt. With amazing authenticity, the novel gives voice to ‘Chattie,’ Miss Charlotte Spears of Annville, a music teacher and composer torn by duty and desire. Part historical fiction, part murder mystery, The Flourish brings to life a fascinating tale of an independent woman’s adventures beside the River Clyde in the late 19th century.
