Summary
For fans of Shirley Jackson, Neil Gaiman, Roald Dahl, and Edward Gorey, a beguiling and disarming debut novel from an award-winning British author about a mysterious group of children who appear to a disfigured recluse and his country doctor--and the startling revelations their behavior evokes
Summary
Disfigured from a terrible childhood incident, wealthy Morgan Fletcher lives alone in his country house, avoiding mirrors and other people except for his housekeeper and the local doctor. Since he's so antisocial, it's surprising that he welcomes two abandoned children into his home. When more children arrive and their behavior becomes increasingly strange, Morgan and the doctor wonder if the kids have a dark purpose. Author Charles Lambert escalates the level of dread as he gradually reveals Morgan's full story in this thought-provoking novel. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
