Another great book from S.J. Bolton. This is an author who is at the top of her game and I think she has now gone to the top of my favourite authors list. I really liked this story. It centers around a family of two young boys and their baby sister, Millie, who move to a rural village in the U.K. and build a house right beside the local graveyard. There is also a new vicar appointed to the parish and he is about to reopen the old church, which has been closed for 10 years, since the tragic accident of a two year old girl, who fell to her death from the gallery. The boys start to see a very strange girl in the graveyard, that they believe is a ghost and they believe she is trying to take their sister. It soon transpires, there have been a number of suspicious deaths and disappearances of little girls from the village over the years and Harry, the vicar and Evi, a psychologist, who becomes involved with a local patient and the boys, start to find something strange is afoot in the village. It's got a great climax, the characters are real and grounded and the story hangs very nicely together, giving a few twists and turns along the way. Really enjoyed it, again, a rather big book, it took me longer than usual to get through all of the pages, but I can't complain about that, because it was so absorbing. I just wish S.J. Bolton had some more books in the pipeline, I have read all her work to-date and don't know when to expect another.
