A couple of weeks ago on tour I shared an extract from Haverscroft by S A Harris.

Today we’re delighted to be sharing Laura’s thoughts with you.

Book cover for ghost story Haverscroft by S A Harris

Kate Keeling leaves all she knows and moves to Haverscroft House in an attempt to salvage her marriage. Little does she realise, Haverscroft’s dark secrets will drive her to question her sanity, her husband and fatally engulf her family unless she can stop the past repeating itself. Can Kate keep her children safe and escape Haverscroft in time, even if it will end her marriage?

Haverscroft is a gripping and chilling dark tale, a modern ghost story that will keep you turning its pages late into the night.


Haverscroft is published by Salt Publishing (15th May 2019) and is available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.

Review

Haverscroft is a captivating story about a young family moving into an old house with a dark and mystical energy. Kate, the mother and the main protagonist, tells the reader in little snippets that she is recovering and struggling with her daily life. Her marriage to Mark is fragile and their move is causing friction.  

The last owner, Mrs Havers is a great character. She adds a creepy but historic element to the story. It is clear she also has her own secrets to tell.  

This is a wonderfully atmospheric, creepy, ghost story, which kept me gripped throughout. The writing includes wonderful suspense and this kept the pages turning. I really wanted to discover the ending but enjoyed the build up to it.  

A great read!
