- Customer Reviews:
"Bailey infuses his eighth novel with a sinister foreboding that excellently villainizes its bucolic English setting...Bailey's eerie prose centers readers firmly and successfully in his seductive and frightening night wood."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"The drafty manor, the shady servants, the tortured protagonists. The writing is dense with allusions and details, the narrative twisting and turning...A modern gothic horror done right."-- "Kirkus Reviews"

The American perspective is jarring and exactly the kind of over-romantic Olde-English faux gothicism I usually try to avoid like the plague. As a Northener, I would say that despite being set in North Yorkshire, almost nothing of the English Northern character or landscapes is captured whatsoever, bar a couple of adequately observed descriptions of the moors. And by the way, Haworth is nowhere near York, it's in the Pennines. A waste of a perfectly good title and my shillings and pence.
A 'Punchy' way of writing at times, a sudden confirmation of what you are thinking as a reader, Loved that, a real experience of reading. Now.. flip it, a real challenge at times with some sentences, mostly needed as regards to the setting of the story, but still a delight to read.
The story is intriguing, interesting and sad. Frustrating at times to learn what had happened to Lissa, took ages, but...worth the wait, really fabulous writing. I found myself reading really fast, getting pulled in completely to the scene.
The characters feel aliitle distant, but good enough for the story line.
The only fault, hence four stars, not five, was the distance as a reader from Erin. Part if story is Erin's pain, difficult to read as a Mum, but I would loved her to have a 'voice' in this story. Her state of mind left her too far to connect with. Missing this was frustrating.
Loved the ending, could not have been better, could visualise it very clearly, wonderfull writing yet again.
Thank you Dale, a treasure on my bookshelf, will recommend to friends.
