On this romantic Halloween romp through the scariest places in Scotland, a young woman discovers that true love can weave a spell all its own. Young and pretty Nessa hates her full name—Agnes—which she inherited from her great-great grandmother. It makes her feel even more awkward that she already is. But she’s starting to think she’s inherited something much more interesting from her namesake. Family rumor has long said that Great-Great Granny Agnes was a real-life witch. And with the peculiar things happening around Agnes lately, she wonders if she’s got a knack for witchery, too. First, there’s the strange book she picks up in her local coffee shop as if she were meant to find it. Then, out of nowhere, her hunky next-door neighbor Ewan asks her to accompany him on a supernatural research trip through Scotland. It’s a spooky, spirited journey—accompanied by a big black cat called Schubert—that will bring out the magic between Agnes and Ewan in a way neither would have expected . . .

A mysterious Victorian diary connects a young romantic in contemporary London to a woman who died a century ago. While visiting the Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can’t take her eyes off her favorite Pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais’s Ophelia. But it’s Cori herself who catches the eye of gallery worker and aspiring artist Simon Daniels. He’s immediately struck by Cori’s resemblance to the red-haired beauty in the nineteenth-century masterwork. While the haunting painting holds the power to bring Cori and Simon together, for Cori it has become an obsession—one that has led her to a mysterious diary from a century ago. Within its pages, a woman named Daisy hid a shocking secret. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and she’s crying out for Daisy to help her. As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they’ll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori’s own chilling connection to both of them.

A woman’s love of impressionist art draws her into a ghostly mystery along the North Yorkshire coastline. Staying alone in a sprawling, long-abandoned estate in Yorkshire would be madness to some. On the other hand, art enthusiast Lissy de Luca is looking forward to the isolation—and to beginning her research into the Staithes Group. It was here, more than a century ago, that the roiling seas and towering cliffs inspired the artistic passions of the famed commune. For Lissy, one of the most inspiring sights is the imposing Sea Scarr Hall itself—but the longer she stays, the stranger things get. There is the lonely figure who strolls the cove at night, and a hidden painting that is both seductive and unnerving. And then there’s the photograph Lissy finds of a young girl—one so unnaturally beautiful and so eerily familiar. Each discovery is leading Lissy to a chilling conclusion. She’s not alone at all. Those who once occupied the shadows of the manor house have a message for her. And they’re going to make sure she gets it. It’s a matter of life and death.

Muriel Spark’s timeless classic about a controversial teacher who deeply marks the lives of a select group of students in the years leading up to World War II “Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life!” So asserts Jean Brodie, a magnetic, dubious, and sometimes comic teacher at the conservative Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh. Brodie selects six favorite pupils to mold—and she doesn’t stop with just their intellectual lives. She has a plan for them all, including how they will live, whom they will love, and what sacrifices they will make to uphold her ideals. When the girls reach adulthood and begin to find their own destinies, Jean Brodie’s indelible imprint is a gift to some, and a curse to others. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is Spark’s masterpiece, a novel that offers one of twentieth-century English literature’s most iconic and complex characters—a woman at once admirable and sinister, benevolent and conniving. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Muriel Spark including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s archive at the National Library of Scotland.
