Lyme Hall is a sensational new self published book by Stuart Webb. The book is going to be released in the coming months and to celebrate an ultra rare set of chapter samples are available only at Doodled Books. These samples are subtly different from the final book as they are from the proofreading/typesetting stage. They are signed, dated, numbered and pre-publication dated. Infact if you look closely they are dated 2009!
Recently Lyme Hall was featured in The Book and Magazine Collector in December. Journalist Jonathan Scott chose the title as one of the New Wave of New Collectables. As you know Stuart Webb is an award winning author of short stories. He famously helped a number of up-and-coming authors to realise their dreams such as Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams to name but a few.
This budding writer improves with every story - evocative and immediately intriguing, this is certainly one to watch -- Jonathan Scott Book and Magazine Collector Magazine
A gloomy mansion, a mysterious lady in white, murderous goings-on... Lyme Hall has all the ingredients of a traditional thriller. But Stuart Webb's modern young protagonist will appeal to today's reader, making this a worthy follow up to Aurora's Tears. -- Steve Augarde Smarties Children's Book Prize award winner
Lyme Hall combines the gothic feel of a classic ghost story with the mystery of a modern Agatha Christie for children. A book that collects you up from the very first page and transports you along with an effortless ease to deliver you at the last word feeling both thrilled by the journey and fulfilled by the final destination. Rose is happy with her life: an expensive house in the city, loving parents and a best friend she can trust. She wants for nothing and lives life to the full. Then, without warning, her perfect world is torn in two. Forced to move to a country house she hates with a father she no longer understands, Rose is lost and alone. And when she begins to hear things that aren't there, see things that can't be real, her father doesn't want to know; all he cares about are the deer that are disappearing from the estate. Maybe, just maybe, if she can solve the mysteries herself, she can finally make him listen.
