Bookmark of Spalding selects its favourite read
Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, has chosen This House is Haunted by John Boyne as its book of the week.
From the writer of the bestseller ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’, this is a highly entertaining, eerie novel set in Norfolk.
It’s full of all the elements that make up a really chilling ghost story.
There’s an isolated mansion, damaged people hidden in the attic, misty countryside, troubled children and country folk who know more than they’re telling…
The sense of foreboding is palpable and this is certain to keep you up at night!
It is set in 1867. On a dark and chilly night Eliza Caine arrives in Norfolk to take up her position as governess at Gaudlin Hall.
As she makes her way across the station platform, a pair of invisible hands push her from behind into the path of an approaching train.
She is only saved by the vigilance of a passing doctor.
It is the start of a journey into a world of abandoned children, unexplained occurrences and terrifying experiences which Eliza will have to overcome if she is to survive the secrets that lie within Gaudlin’s walls.
There is 20 per cent off this book at Bookmark in The Crescent with the voucher contained in this week’s Spalding Guardian.
