A family moves from London to the historical Speedwell House in Devon. There, they start to receive threatening calls from a woman who says that she’s Justine’s (the mother) sister, nevertheless Justine doesn’t know who this woman is. It’s clear that the woman is confused, she wants to talk to a Sandie but the strange thing is that she knows some facts about Justine’s life and she’s sure she’s Sandie.
At the same time, Ellen (the daughter) starts to write a disturbing story about a family, the Ingrey, who used to live in the mansion.
This book exceeded my expectations. It always kept my attention and the more I read the more I wanted to know how the story ended.
There were some details that I disliked, for example, that Justine didn’t take seriously the calls and one at the end that I won’t say because it would be spoiler, but mostly the story was perturbing and exciting.
In my opinion, this book has a very important psychological background. Each character had something peculiar, that fact made the story very interesting for me. Maybe this book could be confusing or strange for some people but I think it’s worth reading, besides it’s an agile reading.
To end, I want to say that the Ingreys were very unpleasant and that I recommend this book.
