"Julia will make your flesh Julia Lofting's husband coldly plotting to drive her insane? Is she unbalanced by the death of her child?? Or is she truly being haunted by the ghost of an obscenely nasty little girl who happens to inhabit the Loftings fashionable London House?..........." Cosmopolitan

This book is one of my favorite reads at 255 pages. It is an hauntingly beautiful tale--and the story comes together at the end. I was never quite sure whether Julia was being haunted or driven insane, or a little of both probably.

Very good read and written by Peter Straub.

This book is comparable to great ghost stories such as Shirley Jackson's Hill House. You wont be able to put it down it is so eerie. The people this woman has surrounded herself with are trying to get her money by driving her insane or IS there a ghost? Its really wonderful writing by the pro Peter Straub. Amazingly good.

Is she unbalanced at the loss of her child or is he trying to drive her crazy or is she truly being haunted in her own house?
