Product description

It’s summer, and Rebecca is an unwilling visitor to Winterfold – snatched away from the buzz of London and a budding romance. Then she befriends Ferelith, who knows Winterfold inside out: the beach, the crumbling cliff paths, the village streets, the woods, the deserted churches and the ruined graveyards being swallowed by the sea. It’s a place that doesn’t like to let you go. During that hot, claustrophobic summer, the two girls discover more about each other and about Winterfold than they really ought. They’re uncovering frightening secrets that would be best left long forgotten. Like the terrible story of the Rector and Dr Barrieux of Winterfold Hall, whose bizarre and bloody experiments into the afterlife would make angels weep, and the devil crow…

History and the present day meld in a sinister fusion in this grisly, blood-chilling tale of suspense.

“This is a superb contemporary gothic horror story… beautifully written and irresistibly dynamic.” Guardian

“Two strong female leads drive a story that is both chilling and memorable in equal measure. Highly recommended.” Fantasy Book Review

    White Crow is fantastic!!

    I read this book for the first time about a year ago, and have read it many times since. The chilling scariness and curious plot made me want to read more... And more... And more, until I finished it! I would recommend to anyone who likes gothic and psychological horror, but doesn't want any horrible gory stuff. An amazing read!!
