Reviews

Susan Hill is the grande dame of English supernatural fiction
Financial Times||No one chills the heart like Susan Hill
Daily Telegraph||Part of the fear she conjures up is a sense that this could happen to anyone
Scotsman||An assuredly chilling ghost story, Dolly doesn't leave its questions unanswered. Damage is assumed, noted, but not forgiven, and as the story develops evil is passed through the generations like a stain
