Published on 16th September, The Shadowing by Rhiannon Ward follows well-to-do Hester who travels to a Nottinghamshire workhouse in Southwell after learning of her sister Mercy’s death. Eager to find out how her sister ended up at such a place and haunted by her sister’s ghost, Hester sets out to uncover the truth. She soon finds out that Mercy was pregnant, and that both she and the baby are said to be dead of cholera. But the workhouse hasn’t had an outbreak for years. So when rumours of children going missing and of a ghostly figure known as the Pale Lady that steals babies in the night, Hester investigates. Is this lady a myth? Or is something more sinister afoot at the Southwell poorhouse?
