This is one of Adams' earliest works and centers on a quaint gift shop in rural England, a 'haunting' figurine of a girl on a swing and a smitten shop clerk. An enjoyable read, it is wholly different from other Adams works, such as Watership Down, Shardick and The Plague Dogs.

I bought a used copy of this book and my cover said "Beautiful, haunting, erotic love story and an absolutely terrifying ghost story." I may have enjoyed the book a lot more if I hadn't had this review to look at every time I picked up the book. The book has some great prose, but really it's just a long narrative about how the main character meets and marries his wife. There are a few 'eerie' parts but nothing really frightening until the last 50 pages of the book (at which point you are dying for action, so it's hardly even satisfying). I guess what I'm saying is that this is a good book and worth the read for the beautiful writing, but don't pick this up if you're looking for a good scare. I didn't enjoy it because I was wanting something else.
