Foreknowledge of what awaited me on Peterborough railway station would have had me packing a bag and going to the bus depot, hitchhiking even or getting a taxi to another town. I could have gone to East Midlands or Norwich Airport or even down south to Stansted or Luton. I could have got an Easyjet flight - hell, if I'd known I was fleeing for my life, I might have even risked Ryanair.
It had been years since I read Norah Lofts. This one was a bit slow, but enjoyable just the same. Im picking up The Haunting Of Gad‘s Hall tomorrow. Two timelines...one from the 1840s and the other, I‘m guessing circa 1970s..one house, two different families. Something tragic happened in house, can‘t wait to see what exactly the more modern family experiences.
At the heart of the story is Hundreds Hall, a decaying mansion which may or may not be haunted by evil spirits. The foreshadowing of the horror, fascinating narrative and memorable ending makes this a #haunting read. Loved it!
