Summary, etc.: "A creepy psychological thriller in a Victorian gothic tradition that recalls Shirley Jackson and Angela Carter"--

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2
    WWII left many British children orphaned, and Eliza and Rebecca are not alone in being sent to live with relatives who don't want them. But when the girls are shipped off to live at Abigale Hall, a remote and creepy home in Wales, their situation goes from pitiful to horrifying. Eliza starts noticing terrible things from day one, including the evil housekeeper, Mrs. Pollard, who is intent on keeping the girls isolated and under her control. The compelling narration alternates Eliza, desperately trying to figure out why so many women associated with the manor have gone missing, and her London boyfriend, Peter, risking all to track down his beloved and bring her home. Forry lulls readers into thinking this is just a typical Gothic thriller until the increasing panic, merging story lines, and deadly secrets begin to precariously pile up, ultimately crashing down in a dark and very sinister collapse. Fans of the recent uptick in contemporary female-driven psychological suspense should be persuaded to try this historical setting. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
