Publisher's Summary

Winner of the HWA Debut Crown Award 2020.

Some secrets are unspoken. Others are unspeakable....

August 1939. 

Thirty-year-old Hetty Cartwright is tasked with the evacuation and safekeeping of the natural history museum’s collection of mammals. Once she and her exhibits arrive at Lockwood Manor, however, where they are to stay for the duration of the war, Hetty soon realises that she’s taken on more than she’d bargained for.Protecting her charges from the irascible Lord Lockwood and resentful servants is work enough, but when some of the animals go missing, and worse, Hetty begins to suspect someone - or something - is stalking her through the darkened corridors of the house. 

As the disasters mount, Hetty finds herself falling under the spell of Lucy, Lord Lockwood’s beautiful but clearly haunted daughter. But why is Lucy so traumatised? Does she know something she’s not telling? And is there any truth to local rumours of ghosts and curses? 

Part love story, part mystery, The Animals at Lockwood Manor by Jane Healey is a gripping and atmospheric tale of family madness, long-buried secrets and hidden desires.

Great but...

The reading was beautiful, Sarah’s voice is so easy to listen to, however I found it was difficult to distinguish between the female characters sometimes. The story was also very slow, and not a lot happens until the end.

dreary narration but wonderfully written story

Thank goodness this story is so well crafted that it kept me hooked as I’m afraid the narrator had a dull style.
