Publisher's Summary

Lacey Carmichael leads a solitary life. To her neighbours she is the mad old woman who lives at the end of the lane, crazy but harmless. Until she is arrested on suspicion of murder.

When Rachel Moore arrives in the village, escaping her own demons, the two women form an unlikely bond. Unravelling in each other's tales of loss and heartache, they become friends.

Rachel sees beyond the rumours, believing in her innocence, but as details of Lacey’s life are revealed, Rachel is left questioning where the truth really lies.

Critic Reviews

"A moving, sensitively written novel by a writer who has a magical way with words. The main characters are beautifully drawn and so real that the reader cannot help but care deeply about them." (Maureen Lee)

"Authentic and intensely heartfelt, Lacey's House tells the story of two women who differ in age, experience, and sensibility but who are drawn together by a shared experience of loss. There is something in this novel for every woman." (Ruth Dugdall)

Touching story of an unusual friendship

The heartwrenching but warm and touching story of an unusual friendship between a young woman who has recently lost her baby and the "mad" old woman living in the house next door. Whilst I found it lacked action and dragged a bit in some parts, it kept me engaged through the tragedy and heartbreak hidden between the lines - so so very sad. Prepare to be touched.
