I love this book. It's dense, detailed, visual, very real – and thus very disturbing. One of the great things about it, to my mind, is that Lynette Sofras doesn't explain everything away at the end with a sweeping justification for it all. While the ending is satisfying, it's also believable. I know these women's lives will go on. They'll continue to learn, hopefully, but they haven't learned everything yet. And they'll always wonder about the strange things that brought them together and cemented their friendship, for a little while, in this strange old house.
Going in to the story, Chichester Court is the residence of Gemma, Annne, Paige, Lucy, Rhia and Johanna. They live with their kids and a series of mystified events evoke curiosity, mystery and fear in their minds. The tale is well described and it helps the reader to understand each and every situation well. I really like how this story rolls back and forth describing the life of each and every character and it grabbed my mind deeply. Precisely it took only two sittings for me to complete this book and I must say that this book made me enjoy my leisure time. Recommended read for all!
There is an air of evil in Chichester Court and it is not a safe place to be. For five women and their children it becomes a house of terror. Strange and disturbing things happen. Frightening dreams, eerie voices trying to coerce them to do unspeakable things, and the feeling of ghostly presence occur. But when the children are in danger and they are watched by a woman in Grey things take a turn for the worst.
A well written paranormal/psychological/suspense. All five women of different ages and points in their lives, are at Chichester for their own reasons. They are trying to cope with their life altering changes and then the secrets of the house surface.
Danger lurks everywhere, no one is safe. These strangers are pulled together, by horrific events. Will they ever be able to cope with what happens behind those walls? Will their lives ever be the same? I strongly recommendUnworkers to those who love a great paranormal/suspense. A definite 5 star read!
*This book was given to me as a gift.
The plot revolves around five women who are living in an old house dedicated as a refuge for lone mothers and their children. But there is something sinister about Chichester house. The women hear voices and they and their children have disturbing dreams. And sometimes – just sometimes – the house changes. Rooms are not the same shape. There are doors where there were none before. The furniture is old-fashioned and you may glimpse a serving girl in Victorian dress or a mysterious woman in grey.
If you enjoy a spooky tale, you will love this one. It is beautifully-written in flawless English with superb plot and pacing. Like all the best writers, Ms Sofras has created characters you can care about - very important for me. (It doesn’t matter how good the writing and plot is. If I don’t care about the people I don’t care about the book.) And she certainly knows how to build suspense.
This is one of those books that is difficult to put down and one that I know I shall read again. Ms Sofras keeps on getting better and better!
