About this item

Murder, intrigue, and a feisty heroine come together in Lucinda Gray's The Gilded Cage, an historical murder mystery and psychological suspense novel for young adult readers.

After growing up on a farm in Virginia, Walthingham Hall in England seems like another world to sixteen-year-old Katherine Randolph. Her new life, filled with the splendor of upper class England in the 1820s, is shattered when she discovers the corpse of her brother George in a lake on the estate—the tragic accidental drowning of a young man, the coroner reports, despite the wound to George's head.

Katherine is expected to observe the mourning customs and get on with her life, but she can't accept that her brother's death was an accident. A bitter poacher prowls the estate, and strange visitors threaten the occupants of the house. There's a rumor, too, that a wild animal stalks the woods of Walthingham.

Can Katherine retain her sanity long enough to find out the truth? Or will her brother's killer claim her life, too?

"A fast-paced, satisfying historical novel with a gutsy heroine and an intriguing 19th-century mystery at its core."—Kirkus Reviews,starred review
