Grace asked:

Why does this sound like The Turn of the Screw? Is this scarier than that book?

Sheila I typically do not find Gothic novels to be scary. I would say I find this type of book to be eerie and/or mysterious and this particular book, if you like Gothic novels, did not disappoint in the eerie and/or mysterious factor.
Catherine I thought it was scary. I have also read Turn of the Screw. I personally think this book is slightly more creepy. Worth reading if you enjoyed Turn of the Screw.
Lori Slivensky because it is similar and no, it's not as scary.
