Abigail Hall
by Lauren A. Forry

With the horrors of the war behind them, Eliza is doing her best to protect her sister Rebecca. It’s not enough for Aunt Bess since she has decided that Eliza and Rebecca are to go to Thornecroft, somewhere in the Welsh countryside, to work as housemaids. No one knew what horrors awaited them within the halls of the long-haunted house and those who walk through its doors.

Within the pages of Abigail Hall, Forry weaves a story of people trying to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of World War II.  Their struggles and the lengths some will go to survive are real. Around these struggles, she weaves a tale filled with ghosts of lost loves and madness. The gothic feel of this novel is eerie but the day to day struggles are gritty and realistic.  The characters are fully defined and historical details well researched.  This is a great one for those who like to end their reading experiences in the last pages with a loud gasp.  Forry’s story will leave you with your mouth hanging open.  Teens and adults alike who enjoy their ghost stories filled with historical detail will enjoy this novel.

I thank the publisher for generously providing an Advanced Reader’s Copy for my honest review.
