After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper class England in the 1820s, is shattered when she discovers the corpse of her brother George in a lake on the estate-the tragic accidental drowning of a young man, the coroner reports, despite the wound to George's head.

Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident. A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham.

Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too?

Bookclub Guide

Magic is the difference between the seen and unseen. Magic is performance. Magic is hard work and practice. But, sometimes, great magicians can make it into something truly mysterious.The word "magic" has changed over time-first used for centuries to explain natural happenings like earthquakes and illnesses-but we still use it to describe things we see but don't understand. Now, H.P. Newquist explains how (nearly) all the famous tricks work in this nonfiction narrative of magic through the ages, from the legends and oracles of ancient Egypt, to the exploits of Houdini and David Blaine.Illustrated with photographs and line drawings, this book will have middle-grade readers spellbound.

Editorial Reviews

"A fast-paced, satisfying historical novel with a gutsy heroine and an intriguing 19th-century mystery at its core."-Kirkus Reviews, starred review"The heroine's strong character and the plot twists will appeal even to teens who aren't normally interested in historical fiction. . . A worthy choice for YA collections."-School Library Journal"Katherine's first-person narration helps readers bond with her somewhat feisty approach to her new life, and the straightforward plot makes it a quick pick for reluctant readers."-Booklist
