My rating: (4 / 5)
What’s better than a great haunted house story? A great haunted mental institution story full of British soldiers suffering from shell-shock in the aftermath of WWI and a young woman with her own haunted past, on the run and pretending to be a nurse in order to work at the creepy old institution on the cliff.
This was a great page turner that really made me feel immersed in the era and in the beautifully wrought space of the mental institution. I dropped one star because I felt some of the characters were a little wooden and could have been fleshed out a bit more, but overall it’s a fabulous read and I will be looking for more by this author.
