Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this tantalizing tale of Victorian ghost stories and family secrets, timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mother's drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. As he discovers more of Viola's chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his family's mystery-or will they bring him the untimely death they seem to foretell?

Harwood's astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons-and stories-can be.

Synopsis:

Plagued with unpleasant memories of his mother's death, shy librarian Gerard Freeman becomes obsessed with the manuscript of a century-old ghost story written by his great-grandmother and entrusted to his care. Reprint.
