Review by Amsa1959
This is an easy read, perfect for a cosy afternoon in the sofa during a rainy afternoon. I had a hard time putting it down. It´s a bit old-fashioned, the ingredients are a vicar, an isolated remote village, an old churchyard, love, buried secrets, ancient rituals and genetic diseases.In a way it reminded me a little of a nice and cosy Midsomer Murder mysteries
Review by wyvernfriend
Slow burning start, speeds up later, story about a village with secrets, as all villages have, only this one involves dead children. Featuring Evi the psychologist and Reverend Harry the new vicar in the village, a family who have just built a house in the village, the children claim they see a ghostly child, and then strange things start to happen.I enjoyed it, except the epilogue, it just didn't work for me. I liked Harry and would have liked to see more of him, if there are further books with him I'd like them.
