Mire House is dreary, dark, cold, and infested with midges. But when Emma Dean inherits it from a distant relation, she immediately feels a sense of belonging.
It isn't long before Charlie Mitchell, grandson of the original owner, appears claiming that he wants to seek out his family. But Emma suspects he's more interested in the house than his long-lost relations. And when she starts seeing ghostly figures, Emma begins to wonder: Is Charlie trying to scare her away? Or are there darker secrets lurking in the corners of Mire House?

Not read the book
The ending is a surprise !!!
The narration is very good. All the characters voices are portrayed really well.
It is a very sad story in many ways
Echoes of The Woman In Black at times ,It does go back and forth in time some what ,and is quite a long read too but well worth it
With this book being horror I guess that's what i expected but I was very disappointed not scary at all just very slow and boring .
I'm terrified of ghosts, even that naff program with Yvette Fielding (the shame) - so if I saw a ghost in my new house and then he shouted at me to get out, see you later!
As my headline suggests there were a lot of comparisons going on with that novel, and I'd be pretty miffed if I was the author. The accents were pretty strong too, so hard to decipher at times.
Not a chance
Writen a better book
All of them
Wish I could get a refund on the time wasted listening.
Alison Littlewood and Penelope Rawlins make a great combination.
The story is would be great as a movie in my opinion
Anyway I enjoyed this book and will be checking out more stories with this combination.
