The estate seems sleepy and idyllic. But a subtle menace creeps into the atmosphere, remnants of a dark history that call to Lydia, and to the youngest, Emeline. All three daughters will be irrevocably changed by what follows, but none more than Lydia, who must draw on a power she never knew she possessed if she wants to protect those she loves. For Willow Hall’s secrets will rise, in the end…
My Review: This book was a great October read for me. It was haunting and suspenseful and the witch aspect made it perfect for before Halloween! The author does a wonderful job blending in the spooky goings on with a bit of romance. The overall feel of this book was very gothic, something I love. What really shines through in this book are the characters. They are have a depth and realness to them that brings them to life. That combined with the haunting setting kept me reading long past my bedtime. If you are looking for a spooky story to read for Halloween this might be the perfect fit!
