Product Description

Product Description

John Tempest is offered a welcome job change. He is delighted: not only will the new position carry with it the chance of promotion, but it will also bring the opportunity for him and his family to escape suburban London for a better quality of life in the old Dorset village of Tip Hollow.

His wife Helen is subdued about the news. The move will mean uprooting her family from familiar surroundings and friends. But it is not only that. Despite its beauty, the remote village of Tip Hollow seems somehow desolate. And something about their future home – a large modern house on a recently developed estate – just does not feel right.

Helen’s unease increases when she learns that not only was the house repossessed from the previous owners, but that old Tip Hollow Hill is an ancient burial ground. Can houses actually feel and convey grief and sorrow? Did something tragic happen in the past that can seep into the walls? Even the odd behaviour of the family cat, Skittles, is disconcerting, so that Helen’s new home soon begins to fill her with dread...

In this chilling tale of psychic suspense Nicola Thorne explores both explicable and inexplicable events that threaten to tear a family apart.

I didn't warm to the style of writing which was a little outdated plus the author's prejudices about town vs country living are a bit uninformed as are her opinions of the jobs market for women - very bizarre really.

Also, the children's views, where portrayed, are unbelievable and obviously not those that a child would express in thought or word.

All in all, I read it to the end because I rarely leave a book midway. However, it wasn't really as suspenseful or dark as the title might suggest - a lightweight really.
