“Pam Smy has created a wonderful piece of work in Thornhill . . . I think it's terrific.” – Philip Pullman

As she unpacks in her new bedroom, Ella is irresistibly drawn to the big old house that she can see out of her window. Surrounded by overgrown gardens, barbed wire fences and 'keep out' signs, it looks derelict.

But that night, a light goes on in one of the windows. And the next day she sees a girl in the grounds.

Ella is hooked. The house has a story to tell. She is sure of it.


#Thornhill by Pam Smy, publishing in hardback on Thursday 24 August 2017.


We are so excited to be taking 4 of our fabulous authors to Hay Festival later this month!TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW!
