About this book
A suspense-filled novella about a spinster, an ancient farmhouse and a man whose name must never be mentioned. Certain to be a Gothic bestseller at Christmas, this title is just as eerie as Hill's classic "The Woman In Black". 'It is all done so well, so wisely that this short book is richly satisfying... it is a little masterpiece.' "Daily Telegraph".
May had been the clever daughter and she had escaped the shelter of the farmhouse, The Beacon, just once for the last 27 years, to go to university. But in London she had been pursued by nameless terrors. Now she was the spinster daughter. She nursed her father after his accident and looked after her mother in her old age.
