The House of Brides

Jane Cockram

A young woman tries to learn the truth about her mother's family in Cockram's spooky homage to Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca. After her career as a social media influencer comes to a humiliating end, Miranda Courtenay decamps Australia for Barnsley House, an English country estate owned by the Summers family where her mother was raised. Curious about this legendary family she has never met, Miranda arrives at Barnsley posing as a prospective nanny. But Barnsley is not what Miranda expected. Her Uncle Max's wife, Daphne, is nowhere to be found. One of the children is in a wheelchair after a mysterious accident. What happened in this house? Where is Daphne? What darkness lies hidden in Barnsley?
