This is the third and final stop on our blog tour of Alison DeLuca’s fabulous Crown Phoenix Series. There are three books in the series, all available on Kindle and Nook.
The Lamplighter’s Special
The Manor where Squire Bisselthwaite lived was in the center of Grimstead Compound. The thirteen farms that made up the rest of the Compound fanned out from the large, old house. Most of the fields touched the edge of the Manor grounds at their narrowest points, although all the farms were separated from the Bisselthwaite property by a dark, crumbling wall.
As Lizzie and her family rode through the huge, rusted iron gates set into the stones, she glanced up at the rooftops of the Manor. Her hat slipped down her neck, and she clapped one hand to hold it on as she squinted up at the dark front of the house.
There was a rather grand entrance, but of course the carriage took the family to the back of the house to the kitchen gardens. As the cart jostled over the pebbly drive, Ninna murmured in Lizzie’s ear, “Did you see that?” She pointed up to one of the windows on the third or fourth floor.
“What?” Lizzie squinted again. It was all a gray blur to her.
“Oh, nothing. Just thought I saw a face in one of the windows upstairs.”
