The clock strikes twelve. Beneath the wind and the remorseless tolling of the bell, no one can hear the scream . . .
1912. A Sussex churchyard. Villagers gather on the night when the ghosts of those who will not survive the coming year are thought to walk. And in the shadows, a woman lies dead.
As the flood waters rise, Connie Gifford is marooned in a decaying house with her increasingly tormented father. He drinks to escape the past, but an accident has robbed her of her most significant childhood memories. Until the disturbance at the church awakens fragments of those vanished years.
Not having read any of Kate’s books before I wasn’t sure what to expect. This one intrigued me the most, but unfortunately I didn’t enjoy it as I thought I might. I gave up half way through and thought this book is definitely not for me. It is a shame as I did enjoy the first few chapters.
