Eleanor is unnerved by the eerie atmosphere in the house and becomes convinced it is making her ill. Whilst Richard remains preoccupied with Zoe, their mercurial 27-year-old lodger, Eleanor becomes determined to unravel the mystery of the house's previous owners - including Emily, whose name is written hundreds of times on the walls of the upstairs room.

Finished this book, constantly awaiting the spooky chiller that other readers had described. It can not seriously be described as a ghost story as the other worldly goings on are overshadowed by the crumbling relationship of the two main characters. Long descriptions of their past that I felt had no bearing on what I assumed this book would be about!
It's well written but ultimately more about depressing relationships than anything supernatural, hence my utter disappointment and the feeling that I wish I hadn't bothered.

Not a bad book at all.
This really isn’t a bad book, it’s written very well. It’s just not what it ‘says on the tin’. It’s not a ghost story, not a thriller, not even really a mystery. It’s a character driven drama. Characters are well defined, realistic and interesting. She’s really managed to capture the nuances of modern life and dissatisfaction with it, which isn’t easy to do. It’s actually quite a pleasant ‘read’. I did feel a tad let down purely because I was hoping for a great creepy thriller of a read as the nights are drawing in, but that’s down to marketing and in no way the writing. I’d definitely read more from the author as there’s nothing wrong with the book. The blurb and synopsis just don’t reflect the novel and I doubt very much these were written by the author herself. The narrator was great too :)
