In this tantalizing tale of Victorian ghost stories and family secrets, timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mothers drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mothers role in a sinister crime. As he discovers more of Violas chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his familys mysteryor will they bring about his untimely death, as they seem to foretell? Harwoods astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletonsand storiescan be.

this was such a strange book, another old fashioned type thing. a boy starts a pen pal relationship where he doesnt end up seeing the girl till he's in his 30s, along with mysteries of his past. it was ok. just strange. kinda literary. very gothic. mixed in, are old gothic ghost tales, written by his family member, that somehow reveal to him his life and past.
