EXCLUSIVE TO DOWNLOAD: Includes an interview with Sarah Waters giving an insight into the story behind
The Little Stranger.
A ghost story from one of Britain's finest and best-loved writers. After her award-winning trilogy of Victorian novels, Sarah Waters turned to the 1940s and wrote The Night Watch, a tender and tragic novel set against the backdrop of wartime Britain. Shortlisted for both the Orange and the Man Booker, it went straight to number-one in the bestseller chart.
In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, the clock in its stable yard permanently fixed at twenty to nine. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.
Prepare yourself. From this wonderful writer who continues to astonish us, now comes a chilling ghost story.

too subtle for me
A bit more action and this book would be a page turner.
Somehow it is not believable that the Lord of the manor wouldn't turn to a minister for getting help. it is nearly unbearable to watch the downslide of the family without putting up at least some fight.
He is definitely brilliant. He can speak the doctor, the maid, the lover and what ever with such a convincing clarity.
It is ok for listeners that are very patient and willing to listen to dialogues which are well written and who are not keen on some action.
