The Ninth Child

The Ninth Child
by Sally Magnusson

Inspired by the mysterious death of the 17th century minister Robert Kirke, the story is set in a pivotal era two centuries later when engineering innovation, bringing clean water to Glasgow, flourished, but women did not. It blends folklore with historical fiction and a profound sense of place in a haunting tale.
