it was amazing

If you’re a fan of the horror or ghost/hauntings genre, this novel is not to be missed. Fraught with images of past horrors hidden in every corner, the house itself is a story untold, waiting to unfold.

Rawlingswood is nestled in what should be the safe neighborhood of Shaker Heights, outside Cleveland, Ohio. But like most so-called safe suburbs, there’s a darker history there than meets the eye. Built upon an old cult ground, the Rawlingswood home has a sinister history that appears to continue to repeat itself. The men who live there don’t seem to live long, and they meet their end in various cruel ways.

As an old Shaker woman said, the dead don’t rest easy there. And neither it seems, do the living.

Ms. Pulley describes the haunting beauty of Rawlingswood in exquisite detail, without boring her readers. If you follow her on social media, and you should, she’s been teasing us for months with photos and virtual tours of homes in the actual Shaker Heights neighborhood that inspired the home in her novel. These tours have been a wonderful way to immerse readers beforehand into the world of No One’s Home, and give them an idea of the opulence of homes such as Rawlingswood.

I recommend this novel to anyone who has read The Haunting of Hill House, as I truly believe it gives it a run for its money in 2019. Also, anyone who enjoys thrillers, ghost stories, and just a good book all-around.
