A blind widower is befriended by a woman and her son, with terrible consequences. Another widower spends Christmas in an isolated country house, marooned in snowstorms until some former inhabitants return.
Susan Hill’s first short story collection for fifteen years contains these two ghost stories and four others, including reflections by the Duchess of Windsor in extreme old age on the marriage that changed everything.
I need something with a little light relief after reading lots of thrillers recently and this book was perfect, it is split into six different stories, I read in half a day and enjoyed all of the stories. It was just the right amount of stories that kept me hooked. The ones I particularly liked were Walter and Florence and Hunger. It just shows you how cruel people can be when people are at their lowest. The stories are all about individuals and with this book they are opening up their world for all to see. It made me thoughtful and one that will stay with me for a long time.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
