Product Description

Bestselling author and two-time winner of the Romantic Novel of the Year Award Rosie Thomas delivers yet again with the captivating story of Nancy Wix in Daughter of the House

In Daughter of the House, Rosie Thomas, "a master storyteller" (Cosmopolitan) returns to the marvelous Wix family.

Nancy Wix, daughter of the stage impresarios Eliza and Devil, must find a way to keep London’s Palmyra theatre afloat, and to entertain audiences who have lost husbands and sons in the first World War. Nancy is a born performer, but she is set apart—even from her beloved brothers—by her psychic gifts. She must harness her troubling powers to keep her family and the theatre intact.

It is a dangerous path and a lonely one, but Nancy’s bold choices lead her to love, and beyond that to the recognition of what it takes to become a modern woman. As another war begins to threaten the world, she is forced into a final, fateful confrontation with her demons, and must marshal both her ingenuity and her mysterious talents to fight for the survival of friendship, independence, and family.

Praise for Rosie Thomas:
