As a young man trying to earn/gain more responsibility from his employer, Arthur Kipps eagerly agrees to make a trip to small village out in the country to settle the affairs of a deceased, elderly woman. It quickly becomes apparent that people in the village dislike discussing the woman, her estate, or anything concerning her house out past the marshes. Kipps discovers why, and his journey will make your heart beat faster, to say the least.
I'm not much for ghost stories, but Hill's style of writing, combined with flawed, yet appealing, characters made this 130+ p. book a fast, enjoyable, and thrilling read. If you get a chance, check it out!
On a Side Note: I can't find my camera-charging cord anywhere. It is driving me insane. I am 99% sure of when and where I last used it, but can't seem to find it. SO, I may have to see if I can get a new one, otherwise I can't take any pictures . . . of anything. It's very annoying; I rely on my camera almost on a daily basis! Maybe The Borrowers are roaming around our house . . .
