Harper-Collins Historical Fiction Blog Tour for MRS.ENGLAND by Stacey Halls

I’m taking part today in a wonderfully gothic and evocative read: Mrs. England by Stacey Halls. I have to say that I found it hard to believe that this book was written in 2022 as it feels so much like a novel from the early 1900’s (or even 1800’s). I loved this story of Ruby May, a nanny with a secretive past who finds her niche with the England family and their four children. There is an undercurrent of tension running throughout this book, as well as an air of mystery, and I just couldn’t put it down! Loved it!

Thanks for my copy and for making me part of the tour!

Book Summary:

Simmering with slow-burning menace, Mrs. England is a portrait of an Edwardian marriage, an enthralling tale of men and women, power and control, courage, truth and the very darkest deception.

West Yorkshire, 1904. When recently graduated Ruby May takes a nanny position looking after the children of Charles and Lilian England, a wealthy couple from a powerful dynasty of mill owners, she hopes it will be the fresh start she needs. But as she adapts to life at the isolated Hardcastle House, it becomes clear something is not quite right about the beautiful, mysterious Mrs. England.

Distant and withdrawn, Lilian shows little interest in her children or charming husband and is far from the angel of the house Ruby was expecting.

As the warm, vivacious Charles welcomes Ruby into the family, a series of strange events forces her to question everything she thought she knew. Ostracized by the servants and increasingly uneasy, Ruby must face her own demons in order to prevent history from repeating itself. After all, there’s no such thing as the perfect family—she should know.

This captivating new feminist novel from Sunday Times bestselling author Stacey Halls is her third work of fiction and proves her one of the most exciting and compelling new storytellers of our time.

Sunday Times bestseller!
