Summary

The mesmerising new novel from the winner of the Costa Short Story Award, following her debut novel, Himself.
Maud Drennan - underpaid carer and unintentional psychic - is the latest in a long line of dogsbodies for the ancient, belligerent Cathal Flood. Yet despite her best efforts, Maud is drawn into the mysteries concealed in his filthy, once-grand home. She realises that Cathal, and the junk-filled rooms, are opening up to her.
With only her landlady and a troop of sarcastic ghostly saints to help, Maud must uncover what lies beneath Cathal's decades-old hostility and the strange activities of the house itself.

Jess Kidd writes with magic in her fingers. I was spellbound throughout. A fantastic book.

delightful

whizzed through this because it was such an entertaining read. the characters are well written and the gentle comedic aspect works well alongside dark truths and imaginings
