There are plenty of others who were part of the story: Lizzie's sister Emma, Bridget the maid, Uncle John ... and someone who knows more than they are letting on.

This was a challenge but we were glad to push through and read something out of our comfort zone. A haunting read! Was well written - very descriptive.
