This was a great book - a true 19th century classic ghost story
This was a great book - a true 19th century classic ghost story with a wonderful setting of a sinister old family mansion full of secrets in a small English town. It's not an in-your-face horror novel, but an elaborately written tale that is chilling and suspenseful.
Eliza's character was very well-developed and easy to like and she was such a strong woman for the time period. Not exactly a "modern", as they said in the book, but a woman who wasn't afraid to be a little more assertive and determined than most of that period.
The children were a little creepy - not Children of the Corn creepy - just a little off, although Eliza grows to care for them and doesn't go screaming into the night and abandon them when strange things begin to happen. The ending offered a twist I never saw coming, but it seemed appropriate.
I could easily have read this book in one sitting due to the pacing and suspense and would have preferred a dark, rainy night to do so - an ideal time to read ghost stories - but unfortunately wasn't able to do that. With Halloween coming, this is the perfect time to read a ghost story and if you prefer foggy, eerie, and ominous over blood, guts, and gore, this is the book for you.
This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.
