Aiken makes use of the hallmark of Gothic fiction—the haunted house—in this story of three authors whose lives become inextricably tied to Lamb House, a Georgian mansion situated in the town of East Sussex, England: Toby Thomas, who lived there in the eighteenth century; followed by Henry James, who discovered Toby’s mysterious diary a century later; and ending with E.F. Benson, who struggled to put the agitated ghosts of Toby and Henry James to rest.

    " I like this author pretty well so far. I liked her Jane Fairfax book better, but this book was a decent read. I enjoyed the first half with it's characters and childhood perspective a little better then the 2nd half. "
