Product description

Review

Ghost stories are for Christmas. Some recent ones haven't quite got it right but this is terrific. Perfect setting, great build-up, chilling. What more could you want ? (Susan Hill, author of The Woman in Black)

Layering on the dark and creepy, this intriguingly plotted novel is the full-blown Gothic, maintaining throughout an unsettling claustrophobic atmosphere mixed with some unusual historical detail (Daily Mail)

A deliciously creepy ghost story (Sunday Express)

Laura Purcell has nailed it with a story that conjures up Susan Hill's The Woman In Black, Henry James's The Turn Of The Screw and a little bit of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (Emerald Street)

A perfect read for a winter night . Intriguing, nuanced and genuinely eerie (Guardian)

A creepy, unsettling tale that I had to finish reading in broad daylight (Stylist, 'Must-Read Books')

A sinister slice of Victorian gothic... creepy and page-turning (The Times)

Really tense and unnerving, it still won't let me go (Woman & Home)

A true page-turner...neatly crafted and compelling...with a spine-tingling revelation every few pages (Times Literary Supplement)

Irresistibly creepy, this romps along, Purcell turning her screws with skill. It's what crumpets and dismal afternoons were made for (Glamour)
