The Secret of Pembrooke Park
Full Product Description
The Secret of Pembrooke Park is Julie Klassen's story of romance and mystery set in the faded glory of a once great house in Regency rural Berkshire.
The story opens with a mysterious invitation to the Foster family - themselves in the middle of a serious financial crisis - to take over the residency of Pembrooke Park.
The Foster family, including the sensible Abigail - fresh from her own failed adventure in love and attendant fears of spinsterhood - and her flighty sister, Louisa, move to Berkshire.
When they arrive at Pembrooke Park, they find the house deserted as it was abandoned without warning. There tea cups encrusted with dry tea, moth-eaten clothes in wardrobes and a doll's house left mid-play.
The only clue to the manor's past is a stern warning sign to trespassers drawn by rumors that Pembrooke Park contains a hidden room filled with treasure.
Family secrets of the Pembrookes, their relationships and intrigues are peeled back and exposed in a story that spans 20 years with consequences that the Foster family could not have foreseen.
As old friends and new foes come calling at Pembrooke Park, its secrets come to light. And with the arrival of the local parson's increasingly assistant, William Chapman, treasure to restore the Foster family fortunes is not all that Abigail hopes to find at Pembrooke Park...

She fears she will end up a spinster, especially as she has little dowry, and the one man she thought might marry her seems to have fallen for her younger, prettier sister.
Facing financial ruin, Abigail and her father search for more affordable lodgings, until a strange solicitor arrives with an astounding offer: the use of a distant manor house abandoned for eighteen years. The Fosters journey to imposing Pembrooke Park and are startled to find it entombed as it was abruptly left: tea cups encrusted with dry tea, moth-eaten clothes in wardrobes, a doll's house left mid-play . . .
The handsome local curate welcomes them, but though he and his family seem acquainted with the manor's past, the only information they offer is a stern warning: Beware trespassers drawn by rumors that Pembrooke Park contains a secret room filled with treasure.
This catches Abigail's attention. Hoping to restore her family's finances and her dowry Abigail looks for this supposed treasure. But eerie sounds at night and footprints in the dust reveal she isn't the only one secretly searching the house.
As old friends and new foes come calling at Pembrooke Park, secrets come to light. Will Abigail find the treasure and love she seeks or a very real danger?

"The Secret of Penbrooke Park is by far the finest to date of author Julie Klassen's novels. Danger. Love. Intrigue. A mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Plan ahead and have plenty of tea and scones available, because seriously, you will not put this one down." - Michelle Griep, Author of 'A Heart Deceived'.
