When Effie accidentally finds a golden brooch, she starts to dig for the treasure chest she knows is right under her feet. Little by little, as she explores its beaches, sea-caves and open meadows, the island grows on her and Crow House becomes the home she’s always wanted. Then it all goes wrong. Forced to take risks, can Effie dig fast enough to save everything she loves?…….. This book is available online from: Amazon.

The Paupers of Langden is set in a distant past of carts and mud, rats in the scullery and big slices of pigeon pie. Told through the eyes of a mousey servant girl it charts the story of her life doing the bidding of her seriously beautiful mistress.
