The Pram recounts the frightening experience of Carrie M. as she is terrorised by the ghost of her worst mistake.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This was a very odd story, strange and unusual.

I loved it at first then got bored as it seemed to ramble on a bit in the middle and then I got into it again.

Glad I read it, on the whole it was enjoyable!
