One of this lovely author’s best books, originally published in 2007. If you’ve missed it you must catch up. Helen is the Judge’s daughter, a sad, neglected child who becomes more so once her mean-spirited widowed father remarries. Agnes is the wife of one of the Judge’s employees. We follow both women through many twists and turns and numerous plot lines. This really is an incident-full tale with characters you truly get to know and care for while your emotions are rung. She is a very fine author in this area. Highly recommended. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Judge's Daughter by Ruth Hamilton

Agnes Makepeace has always been courageous and strong-minded and on the surface, she couldn't be more unlike the chilly, reserved Helen Spencer. Agnes knows there is a mystery to her own background and is determined to discover the truth about her past. She believes the key to unlock the secret is held with husband's employer, Judge Zachary Spencer of Lambert House - a mean-spirited widower and solitary man. Judge Spencer has long neglected his daughter, Helen and notices her even less when he takes a new wife. But he has underestimated both the extent of his daughter's misery and her determination to enact her revenge. Helen's new-found confidence causes her to behave in a way that will have a lasting, and shocking impact on both families and, surprisingly, leads to a lifelong friendship with Agnes. Yet it is only when the broodingly silent house on Skirlaugh Rise ceases to hold its breath and deliver the answers that Agnes has been seeking that she can finally find the peace of mind she has always longed for.
