The Unforeseen Author:Dorothy Macardle The Power of Evil: When Nan Wilde caqme to stay in the white cottage in the glens of Ireland she found her loving mother transformed into a stranger -- haunted, suspicious, devious. As terror mounted, Nan knew unseen influences were at work, that she must fight a demoniac power which spelled doom for them all.
With a similarly spooky theme, and nice, fluid writing style, this promised to be a great read since Macardle's ghost story "the Uninvited" is a particular favorite of mine.
Unfortunately, this novel is a real let down. The story concerns a woman who seems to have the gift of pre-cognition, but sees things that aren't always pleasant. This lead character acts so preposterously that I lost all patience with her and Macardle. It's okay if you don't use her previous book as a standard.
