This house is haunted by John Boyne

Haunted1867 London and Eliza Caine and her father attend a talk by their favourite writer Charles Dickens. There they hear a new ghostly tale the author has yet to publish. When her father dies soon after, Eliza is forced to travel from London to Norfolk to take up a post as governess at Gaudlin Hall.

So begins a wonderfully chilling tale of a mother’s determination to protect her children and one young woman’s fight to discover the truth behind the deaths of the previous four governesses.

I’ve loved all the books that I’ve previously read by Boyne, and this is no exception. This is reminiscent of The Woman in Black and all the more interesting because of the Norfolk setting.
