The ghosts of The Assembly Room have been waiting for someone to unlock their secrets, and Merryn Stearne has arrived. For 14 year old Merryn, the future should have been perfect–a new home in the idyllic Suffolk countryside and romance with Jamie, the gorgeous boy next door. If only the past would stop interfering with the present.
Dreams of medieval witchcraft trials become so terrifyingly real that Merryn realises there is a mystery to be solved. With Jamie's help, she uncovers the truth about her ancestor's role in the Suffolk witch-hunts of 1645.
But can they stop the curse that threatens to ruin the Stearne family once again, or are the forces of the past too strong?
Author Bryony Allen says “What happens when spirits from the past will not rest until they have destroyed an entire family line? That is the dilemma facing Merryn Stearne when she starts a new life in the Suffolk countryside, and begins to learn of her family’s link to the witchcraft trials of the 1600s. ‘The Assembly Room’ is the second Young Adult book by Bryony Allen, and blends some of the darker aspects of medieval history with mystery, the supernatural and the modern life of a teenager.”
