Publisher's Summary

A Sunday Times bestseller!

"Highly atmospheric and tense."—Richard Osman, New York Times bestselling author of The Thursday Murder Club 

Simmering with slow-burning menace, Mrs. England is a portrait of an Edwardian marriage, an enthralling tale of men and women, power and control, courage, truth and the very darkest deception.

West Yorkshire, 1904. When recently graduated Ruby May takes a nanny position looking after the children of Charles and Lilian England, a wealthy couple from a powerful dynasty of mill owners, she hopes it will be the fresh start she needs. But as she adapts to life at the isolated Hardcastle House, it becomes clear something is not quite right about the beautiful, mysterious Mrs. England.

Distant and withdrawn, Lilian shows little interest in her children or charming husband and is far from the angel of the house Ruby was expecting.

As the warm, vivacious Charles welcomes Ruby into the family, a series of strange events forces her to question everything she thought she knew. Ostracized by the servants and increasingly uneasy, Ruby must face her own demons in order to prevent history from repeating itself. After all, there's no such thing as the perfect family—she should know.

This captivating new feminist novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Stacey Halls is her third work of fiction and proves her one of the most exciting and compelling new storytellers of our time.

You get used to the narration

The narrator employs a stilted delivery seemingly to enhance the protagonist’s description as an employee at the hands of employers. It’s not a riveting decision. However, it’s doable. The story is not quite as engrossing as the author’s previous work, “The Lost Orphan”, but it has its own special nuance and I enjoyed the listen. I look forward to more from Stacey Halls.
