STAR RATINGS GUIDE

THE BIRDICT

❤️️ This was my first Jennifer McMahon book and it was an instant favourite.

💜 She not only captures the more instinctive aspects of horror - the spooky sense-driven goosebumpy atmosphere- but the story taps into very primal ideas of right and wrong. And by that I mean, I felt the injustices and rooted for them to be righted like they had been done to me.

💚 I cared about what happened to every single character. In some books that have two timelines I find myself skimming through one to get to the other, but somehow this had me gripped for every single moment.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Cassandra Campbell and Käthe Mazur deliver atmospheric, haunting performances. Brilliantly cast and a great listen.

This is one of the best horror novels I've read, on a level with Shirley Jackson.

ABOUT

The Winter People

THE BLURB

West Hall, Vermont, has always been a town of strange disappearances and old legends. The most mysterious is that of Sara Harrison Shea, who, in 1908, was found dead in the field behind her house just months after the tragic death of her daughter, Gertie. Now, in present day, 19-year-old Ruthie lives in Sara's farmhouse with her mother, Alice, and her younger sister, Fawn. Alice has always insisted that they live off the grid, a decision that suddenly proves perilous when Ruthie wakes up one morning to find that Alice has vanished without a trace. Searching for clues, she is startled to find a copy of Sara Harrison Shea's diary hidden beneath the floorboards of her mother's bedroom. As Ruthie gets sucked deeper into the mystery of Sara's fate, she discovers that she's not the only person who's desperately looking for someone that they've lost. But she may be the only one who can stop history from repeating itself.
