A haunting, compelling story of a wealthy, English family set in a time and class that is forever lost. This really is the tale of a ten year old girl whose life is forever and completely changed, one starlit evening and the impact of that change on those around her. I warn you that it is at times so very, very dark and disturbing that it can prove difficult to read and impossible to consider! Despite this, it is the very raw and Gothic nature of this essential, naked truth that pulls you forward. Well researched and extremely well written, this story does not disappoint, especially on a rainy day.
