In a house in London a woman starts a new life, trying to put tragedy behind her. Then a pretty blonde child runs into view, bringing with her an inexplicable suggestion of evil.
Once Julia Lofting had a husband and a daughter. But everything has changed since she bolted from her marriage, in flight from the unbearable truth of her daughter's death. For Julia, there is no escape. Another child awaits, another mother suffers, and a circle of the damned gathers around her. The haunting has begun . . .
Creepy ghost story!
If you like Peter Straub’s Ghost Story and you consider it a classic, good for you. In my opinion, he created a much better ghost story when he wrote this chiller, the first book I ever read by Straub! Julia isn’t just a ghost story, it’s also a mystery, a very suspenseful mystery, and that made it a pleasure for me to read! In my opinion, all of his fans should give it a try, especially if you’re a fan not only of horror novels, but also mystery-suspense novels! Fans of both genres will love this book which also makes a great introduction to Peter Straub for first time readers of this author’s fiction! Read Julia anytime you’re in the mood for a spooky good time and, I guarantee you, she will be good company!
