Verity Sparks, Lost and Found

By Susan Green

Melbourne. 1879. Verity Sparks has found her father. But she has lost her gift – the ability to find lost things. Papa Savinov, eager for Verity to become a proper lady, sends her to the exclusive boarding school Hilltop House. But Verity is more interested in solving the case of the missing Ecclethorpe heiress. As the investigation deepens, danger and intrigue grow closer. Will Verity’s gift return before it’s too late?
