When Cora and her little sister, Mimi, are sent to stay with
their great-aunt in the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon, they receive a less
than warm welcome and are desperate to go back to London. But Auntie Ida’s life
was devastated the last time two young girls were at Guerdon Hall, and now her
nieces’ arrival has reawakened an evil that has lain in wait for years. A
haunting voice in an empty room; a strange, scarred man lurking in the
graveyard; mysterious words scrawled on the walls of the abandoned church…All
point to a horrifying truth that has held Bryers Guerdon in its dark grip for
centuries, a truth that Cora, along with Roger and Peter, two young village
boys, must uncover—before it’s too late for Mimi.
A compelling, atmospheric novel inspired by a haunting folk
song about murder, witchcraft, and revenge, Long
Lankin is a truly stunning debut from an exciting new writer.
