Waterstones Says

A house with a disturbing past haunts Kelda and her young son in this bravura piece of ghostly brilliance which wears its gothic trappings with disquieting style.

Waterstones Welsh Book of the Month for October 2023

The past isn't always dead and buried.

A house with history. That's how the estate agent described the old toll house on the edge of the town. For Kelda it's the perfect rural home for her young son Dylan after a difficult few years.

But when Kelda finds a death mask concealed behind one of the walls, everything changes. Inexplicable things happen in the house, Kelda cannot shake the feeling of being watched and Dylan is plagued by nightmares, convinced he can see figures in his room. As Dylan's behaviour becomes increasingly challenging, Kelda seeks answers in the house's mysterious past. But she's running out of time.

Because something has awoken. And now it won't rest...
