Taut psychological drama,
This review is from: The Hidden Girl (Kindle Edition)
Even though it is not said- you sense something is off with Hannah and Will; as if there is some sort of sadness they are alluding to. Their damaged relationship trickles down into everything they touch; tainting it with a kind of residual misery.
Hannah creates and atmosphere of tension as she tries to complete the house on a unobtainable time frame.
A snow storm isolates Hannah and she becomes increasingly hyper- sensitive. Is it her imagination, or are the weird sounds and open cupboards a sinister trick of her imagination or the work of hidden vagrant?
As the snow thaws they meet the other inhabitants of the hamlet; as expected there are all a bit odd.
Elvie, their neighbour and who is suspected to have learning difficulties- attached herself to Hannah.
There are some incredible developments in this taut psychological drama. I did not see the end coming. I highly recommend The hidden girl.
