The Lost Ones

The Lost Ones by Anita Frank

Some houses are never at peace...

It’s 1917 and Stella Marcham is grief stricken following the death of her fiancé in the war. Her brother in law Hector asked her to go to his family home Greyswick because her pregnant sister Madeline is in need of her help. Accompanying Stella is the family’s maid Annie. However Stella arrives to a house of unease and Madeleine gripped by fear. Quickly, strange incidents disturb Stella - sobbing in the night, little footsteps on the stairs - there is something unseen watching in this house of shadows and she is drawn to the tragic history of the house.

This is a perfect read for this time of year. Downton Abbey …but with spooky goings on! This creepy, gothic mystery is suitable for fans of Laura Purcell’s The Silent Companions or Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White.
