The Little Stranger - Sarah Waters

Image showing book cover of The Little Stranger

In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline.

The Ayres are haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life. Little does Dr Faraday know how closely, and how terrifyingly, their story is about to become entwined with his.
