A location which entices you to learn the truth of its troubled past. But once you bear witness to its sights and sounds, its presences will never allow you to forget.

Uncover the truth, journeying back to a forgotten time. With a plot full of secrets and suspicion that will leave you longing for answers.


I found this book on Kindle Unlimited. 

Leslie has been trapped in the small village he grew up in.  Taking care of his parents after all of his siblings fled their overbearing father. After his mother dies he is unsure what to do next as he has never been alone.  One night his oldest brother shows up and gifts him a cottage in Scotland.  He leaves immediately and what he finds is a small ravaged town, untrusting locals and a house that holds a lot of misery.  With the help of one of the neighbors Leslie is able to uncover what is happening and how to help bonding himself to the town and his neighbor. 

Well written ghost story. Lots of creepy elements to it and subtle things that I missed since I was sick when I read it but came to me after I finished. Fun quick read.
