The Corner House


Read by Jacquerie

(4.5 stars; 31 reviews)

A deserted house with a troubled past. A mysterious countess who captivates everyone with her wealth and beauty -- well, almost everyone. An equally mysterious derelict who holds a secret to the countess's past. A fresh crime that threatens to ruin a promising young doctor. A plucky young governess determined to save him. Who will prevail? (Jacquerie) (7 hr 22 min)
