Sometimes you need a dose of something spooky, and few deliver like Jackson. This book gripped me from the opening line and didn’t let me go until the last. I read it all night, thought about it all day, and then read it some more. Mary Catherine and her sister Constance are hiding a sordid secret in their house on the hill. But what?
Let Jackson’s flawless prose navigate you through delicious tensions and chills on all scales, from smothering internal neuroses, to the terrifying roar of mob-mentality. What is real? Who is in the wrong? This book is an endlessly fascinating examination of social structures and mental health; but never skimps of the good old-fashioned thrills. Wait for a dark and stormy night and dive into the shadows and injustices lurking in the Blackwood Castle.
