This book was a no-go for me. It was so slow getting into, and once I finally got the gist of the horror a few chapters in, I didn't really care about or care for the characters. Although I have never experienced the death of someone close to me, especially an unborn child (so my judgment could be very wrong), I thought four years was a bit too long to grieve over such a loss. Therefore I thought Polly was a bit weak right off the bat and she came across as too whiny and needy for my tastes.

I only made it about half way through this book. It is slow.

I read this book as a teen and thought it was one of the fastest, easiest reads I ever came across. My sister read the book as well and she finished it within 2 days. It might be a style that is not as appealing to adults, but a great read for younger readers.

"The old Harris house has been vacant for years. A summer vacation in Hilton, Maine would be the best thing for Tim Harris, his wife Polly, and their young son, Brian. Restoring Tim?s childhood home to its original splendor would help Polly restore her own life after a breakdown that left her fragile and afraid. But for Polly it?s the beginning of new nightmare... This summer it?s coming to life. Human bones are discovered in a nearby construction site. Brian nearly drowns while playing with a mysterious new playmate. Polly hears whispers no one else can hear. She sees a young girl no one else can see. And Polly?s been warned. Something else lives in the Harris house. It?s long dead but not forgotten. And it?s not forgiving. In the dark at the top of the stairs, it?s waiting? "
