When Lindy, a recently widowed American expat, buys a large manor house in the Cotswolds, she thinks it's the fresh start she and her wayward daughter Izzy need. Stagcote Manor is a large, rambling house with a rich history and Lindy is thrilled at the prospect of their new life there.
Izzy, however, is less convinced. She longs to be back in the hustle and bustle of London. There's something unnerving about the house that she can't quite put her finger on. And as Izzy begins to immerse herself in Stagcote life, she comes to realise the locals have a lot of bizarre superstitions, many of them related to the manor.
When Izzy begins to investigate the history of the manor her unease soon darkens to fear as the house's dark past finally comes to light.

Silly and sillier
Ummmmm, I am afraid it just got sillier and sillier. I would have preferred more focus on the land and the folk lore… More Alan Garner less hammer horror? Also the perspective from which it was written was infuriating.
The protagonist I am afraid
For some reason in my head I had decided it was going to be an interesting mix of The Owl Service and The Wasp Factory, sadly, this was not the case.
weird and boring
