A gripping gothic page-turner told in a startlingly different and wonderfully captivating voice. In a remote and crumbling New England mansion, 12-year-old orphan Florence is neglected by her guardian uncle and banned from reading. Left to her own devices she devours books in secret and talks to herself in a unique language of her own invention. By night, she sleepwalks the corridors and is troubled by a recurrent dream in which a mysterious woman appears to threaten her younger brother Giles. Florence becomes convinced that her new governess is a vengeful and malevolent spirit who means to do Giles harm. Against this powerful supernatural enemy Florence must use all her intelligence and ingenuity to both protect her little brother and preserve her private world.

    " I enjoyed the story, but it took me longer to "enjoy" the language of Florence. Great story though. "

    " I read this book in about 2 days and found it difficult to put down It is an excellent story, but i think I guessed early on how it was going to end.The characters draw you in and the atmosphere of the book is excellent. The description of Blithe house is wonderful. I would recommend it "

    " It was a strange book. An odd way of writing, what with the young girls own language. It was very very creepy! and i did not expect the end. "

    " A fantastic read. Truly, its Henry James meet Edgar Allan Poe. Florence is one character that is going to stay with me for a long time to come. A masterfully crafted story with a gut wrenching twist. Like the other reviewers have stated, there seldom comes a book that is so rich in atmosphere that one devours it with such zest! Loved it! Please read it! "

    " I like small gothic horror books. I got it for 99p on the kindle store. It's eerie and slow and creepy- small children with a nanny in a great big old house. I kinda guessed what was happening - comes from reading too much Agatha Christie- but a good read nonetheless. "

    " Incredibly thrilling .... a true gothic mystery!!! Impossible to put down once you have begun reading!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/30/2013

    " Totally enjoyed this am still unsure if Florence is surely slighted and protective or is indeed a serial killer of nannies!! "

    " This book was atmospheric, gripping and all too plausible in most parts. I felt very sorry for Florence and Giles and wanted to book to continue so I could know if their life took a turn for the better. "

    " I haven't read a book this creepy and atmospheric for a long time. Excellent. "
