Publisher's Summary

The remoter parts of the English Fens are forlorn, lost and damp even in the height of summer. At Lyot Lock, a large decaying house, two young cousins, Leonora and Edward are parked for the summer with their ageing spinster aunt and her cruel housekeeper. At first the unpleasantness and petty meanness’s appear simply spiteful, calculated to destroy Edward's equanimity. But when spoilt Leonora is not given the birthday present of a specific dolly that she wants, affairs inexorably take a much darker turn with terrifying, life-destroying, consequences for everyone.

Perfect Ghost Story

I really loved this. Perfect ghost story comes back and forth in time, and although felt sad for the character, liked the ending. Would love to read more about this dolls and their origin..
