Summary

In a remote, crumbling house in the Fens live four sisters - Agatha, Milly, and Ellen and Esther - identical twins so closely linked as to be almost one person. They have lived there all their lives, trapped still by the fear of their dead father, who governs his daughters' lives from beyond the grave. And then there is George, another inhabitant, imprisoned in the cellar.

Little by little, macabre events come to light: events that transform an idyllic country childhood into a world of eccentric isolation.

Critic reviews

"A superior and very English offering: mad, macabre ... deserves attention and applause" (Sunday Telegraph)
"A true original ... a startling work. Eerie and satisfying - a horro story told with tenderness" (Sunday Times)
"Chilling and creepy .. but filled with love and passion" (Publishing News)

Surprising!

Such a gentle introduction which slowly soured to a strange distorted world. Listened in two sittings on a long drive and thoroughly enjoyed the story which was easy to listen to and will be remembered for it's originality.
