The Stopped Heart

They need to put the horror of the past behind themOne hundred and fifty years earlier a huge oak tree was felled in front of the cottage during a raging storm Beneath it lies a young man with a shock of red hair presumed dead surely no one could survive such an accident But the red haired man is alive and after a brief convalescence is taken in by the family living in the cottage and put to work in the fields The children all love him but the eldest daughter Eliza has her reservations There’s something This is an exceedingly atmospheric haunting ghost story told over two time lines In the present we have Mary and Graham who have escaped to the country to make a fresh start after a family tragedy Little do they know that their new house was host to its own family tragedy 150 years ago and we watch events then unfold through the eyes of Eliza daughter of the house at the time It is a haunting read that is uite chilling at times one that really got to me I especially liked the characters and indeed both time lines has people who are just downright creepy who you wouldn t want to go near at all There is no demarcation between each time line in the book so sometimes it did get just a little confusing until I realised that the modern day segments are told in third person and the historic parts in first person Once I got used to it it wasn t too bad at all changing from one time frame to anotherIt is a good read which very cleverly drew me in and I thoroughly enjoyed it Many thanks to the publisher via Netgalley for the review copy
