Susan Hill is a fine writer of ghost fiction and the atmosphere and telling of this story set in the bleak windswept fens is up to her usual high standard. What let this down for me was the portrayal of Leonora as an arch villainess with no redeeming features (all bit lazy and one dimensional) and the use of sick children as objects of horror made me uncomfortable. I appreciate imposing boundaries in this type of fiction can be very difficult and I suppose this is just one that over-stepped the mark for me. Cameron Stewart is a very fine narrator with a voice like velvet but I think he should stick with male characters as his females sounded a bit ‘dameish’ in this production.
