About thirty years ago I was selected by two rich old maids to visit a property in that part of Lancashire which lies near the famous forest of Pendle, with which Mr. Ainsworth's "Lancashire Witches" has made us so pleasantly familiar. My business was to make partition of a small property, including a house and demesne to which they had, a long time before, succeeded as coheiresses.
The last forty miles of my journey I was obliged to post, chiefly by cross-roads, little known, and less frequented, and presenting scenery often extremely interesting and pretty. The picturesqueness of the landscape was enhanced by the season, the beginning of September, at which I was travelling.

I couldn't even get through the sample it was so boring. Maybe it picks up later and becomes a wild and wooly lliterary romp but I seriously doubt it.
JS LeFanu is considered one of the creators of horror literature. His books and stories are subtle, and not for people who think horror is gore and violence. That is probably why the other reviewer thought it was boring. This is more for Lovecraft and Stoker fans.
