The girls heard it first, the knocking inside the walls . . .
1976. Loo and her sister Bee live in a run-down cottage in the middle of nowhere, with their artistic parents and wild siblings. Their mother, Cathy, had hoped to escape to a simpler life; instead the family find themselves isolated and shunned by their neighbours. At the height of the stifling summer, unexplained noises and occurences in the house begin to disturb the family, until they intrude on every waking moment . . .
Loo, now Lucy, is called back to her childhood home. A group of strangers are looking to discover the truth about the house and the people who lived there. But is Lucy ready to confront what really happened all those years ago?
Firstly thank you to zaffre for my copy to review. I had seen a lot of buzz and excitement over this book.
A fantastic debut and admittly not my chosen genre but the joys of being a book blogger is the opportunities to try new authors.
Excellently written in a dual timeline narrative. Incredibly spooky and atmostpheric. Amanda has really set the scene for this story. You could feel the dry heat of that long sunmer 1976
Intriguing and chilling.
Examines troubled dynamics within a family.
A compelling read and look forward to reading more from this suthor.
