Hope Cottage


Recently divorced from a manipulative husband and grief-stricken following the death of her mother, Cassie Wilkinson has never felt so hopeless and alone. An unexpected inheritance affords her the opportunity to start anew. The surprise acquisition of the unsuitably named Hope Cottage spurs her to flee from the familiarity of the place she has always known to the quintessential English village of Marleston, but this gift from the grave is not without its ghosts. A startling discovery unveils a series of tragedies and emotional turmoil inherent within the family of her estranged grandmother.Will Cassie find the quietude for which she longs or will the skeletons in the closet vanquish any chance of true happiness? All initial profits from the sale of this book will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity U.K. in memory of my mother.

Catherine McCarthy

Catherine McCarthy grew up in the industrial valleys of South Wales, U.K. where she went on to teach in primary education for almost three decades.

She was inspired to write from a young age, having fallen in love with story-telling after being 'shown the light' by her mother who had the tradition down to a fine art.

Her first published novel, The Gatekeeper's Apprentice, is a fantasy adventure for middle grade readers. (Please see facebook page for lots of illustrations and animations which accompany the book.)

Her second novel, Hope Cottage, is a dark family saga for adults and her most recent publication is a collection of dark, short stories entitled Door and other twisted tales.

Having traded the challenges and rewards of teaching for the hurdles and merits of full-time writing, she now lives with her illustrator husband in a 200 year old cottage in beautiful West Wales.
