A heartfelt, lovely, interesting story set between 1910 and 1931, where a family with a difference, face everyday and extraordinary difficulties and conflicts. Daughter of the House follows on from The Illusionists however you don't need to read these two books in sequence to feel at home. The focus is Nancy, the daughter of the main characters from the prequel, at the start of the novel, Nancy is 12, she has a secret gift she calls ‘the Uncanny’ which is set to help but also to haunt her. Rosie Thomas covers complex emotions and feelings, yet writes with simplicity and clarity. Her engaging cast, from the occupants of the Victorian variety hall through to the higher echelons of society feel undeniably vibrant and real. Extremely readable, poignant and moving, this is an entertaining and enjoyable novel.

One of our Books of the Year 2015.
