If it’s a spooky story you are after, then this is the one for you! Whispers in corridors, whistling winds, unexplained sightings and a sense of foreboding throughout.

The set up is perfect for this time of year. As the dark nights draw in, a nanny heads to a remote Scottish island. She is running from a troubled past and hopes to have a fresh start. However, that’s not going to happen. Her charge is mute and there’s tragedy in her past. To make matters worse, the former nanny unexplainably disappeared. Now that is a good set of spooky ingredients right?

The setting and evocation of island life is fascinating to read about. It all feels very real and spooky.  A decaying house with shadows and secrets? Whistling that can’t be explained? A missing nanny and a mute child? An island shrouded in mist and mystery?

This is not one to read at night as I found it genuinely unsettling. I am a sucker for punishment and read it on a backlit Kindle paperwhite at night. Whoah haha. That worked well! I didn’t dream at all of the events of the book afterwards. Managed to sleep every night straight through without problems. Yes, totally.

This is THE book for Halloween and those dark winter nights.
