Soon to be a major motion picture–releasing August 31 in the US–the nationally bestselling and chillingly rendered ghost story–“several sleepless nights are guaranteed” (Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly).
One postwar summer, in his home in rural Warwickshire, Dr. Faraday is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries, the Georgian house, once impressive and handsome, is now in decline. Its owners–mother, son, and daughter–are struggling to keep pace with a changing society. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Little does Dr. Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.
