Abstract:

Scotland, 1863. In an attempt to escape her not-so-innocent past in Glasgow, Bessy Buckley--a wide-eyed and feisty young Irish girl--takes a job as a maid in a big house outside Edinburgh working for the beautiful Arabella--the "missus." Bessy is intrigued by her new employer, but it seems that the missus has a few secrets of her own, including her near-obsessive affection for Nora, a former maid who died in mysterious circumstances. Yet even when caught up in a tangle of madness, ghosts, sex, and lies, Bessy remains devoted to Arabella. But who is really responsible for what happened to Nora?--From publisher description.
