Review: Long Lankin By: Lindsey Barraclough

Long LankinLong Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A perfectly written haunting novel!!!
In August 1958, Cora and her sister MiMi (Elizabeth) is placed in the care of their Great Aunt Ida. Nothing is as it seems, for the Guerdon Hall is as old as the area it was built to protect. Unforunately, the Guerdon family has been plagued by a curse for generations and just by walking through the door, Cora and her sister have awakened it.
Written in first person by three characters, this novel sucks you in and keeps you enthralled til the end. The story creates a tale, weaving a gothic fear, and unleashing the bones long buried within Hall.
I could not put this down. I am glad that I didn't pick this up at night - for surely the fear seeps off the pages and into the reader. I lovede the characters, the development, and the MOST original storyline. A truly great read that will be with you long after you finish the last page.
