A review by Carrie L.
This was my first Sarah Waters book and I just loved it.
Were they all crazy or was there really a ghost? I think its up to the reader, and alittle sad at the end. This story had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t wait to finish it. I will be reading more of her books. See more reviews by Carrie here

We are pleased to bring you great new titles by some wonderful authors. Larwrence Block, Greg Rucka, and James Huston have been some of our top selling authors for years, and what could we possibly say about a new Chuck Palahnuik title except “stand back!” The Little Stranger, is the eagerly anticipated fifth novel by Sarah Waters.
Peter De Jonge steps out of James Patterson’s shadow with an edgy, electrifying, dark and riveting debut, Shadows Still Remain.
So the buzz has begun with the announcement that Dan Brown‘s The Lost Symbol is to be released on September 15th. With a mega first run of 5 million copies the publisher is pumping truckloads of money hyping this book, riding on what’s left of the Da Vinci Code success, right on the tail of the spring release of Angels and Demons the movie. We are not sure whether we will be able to offer signed copies of this title, but will certainly let you know when we do.

(Publisher’s Weekly, Mar 30)
Sarah Waters (The Night Watch) reflects on the collapse of the British class system after WWII in a stunning haunted house tale whose ghosts are as horrifying as any in Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House. Doctor Faraday, a lonely bachelor, first visited Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked as a parlor maid, at age 10 in 1919. When Faraday returns 30 years later to treat a servant, he becomes obsessed with Hundreds’s elegant owner, Mrs. Ayres; her 24-year-old son, Roderick, an RAF airman wounded during the war who now oversees the family farm; and her slightly older daughter, Caroline, considered a “natural spinster” by the locals, for whom the doctor develops a particular fondness. Supernatural trouble kicks in after Caroline’s mild-mannered black Lab, Gyp, attacks a visiting child. A damaging fire, a suicide and worse follow. Faraday, one of literature’s more unreliable narrators, carries the reader swiftly along to the devastating conclusion. (May)
