What you need to know before your trail

The evacuations begin, and soon children are being taken to the country for safety. Teacher Eve Parkins is in charge of one such group. The children are scared and Eve does her best to calm them, but the truth is that she too is haunted by a personal tragedy she cannot put behind her.

Their destination is Eel Marsh House. Desolate and forlorn, it is situated on a causeway and is sinking into the treacherous tidal marshes that surround it.

Far from home and with no alternative, Eve and the children move in.

But soon it becomes apparent that there is someone else in the house with them, someone Eve can’t see but who is far more deadly than any number of German bombs …

Travel Guide

Crythin Gifford

The fictional village where the novel is set is never really firmly located in any part of England apart from somewhere on the coast. Sam Daily describes Crythin Gifford to Arthur as they sit on the train together:

“… There’s the drowned churches and the swallowed-up village,” he chuckled. “Those are particularly fine examples of ‘nothing to see.’ And we’ve a good wild run of an abbey with a handsome graveyard—you can get to it at low tide.”

Crythin Gifford is a dreary, bleak town filled with secrets, lies and ghostly shadows. It’s surrounded by wild fields and plants, trees and landscape which seems to swallow up the people of this rather dismal town. As for Eel Marsh House, well you just know it’s going to be old, haunted and chilling. It’s set on Nine Lives Causeway – which tells you everything you need to know!
