The Little Stranger

The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters is a ghost story for everyone. By everyone, I mean those who love ghost stories and also those who resist them. The writing is so spot-on and the hauntings so psychologically resonant, that they give even the skeptical reader pause. The Ayres' family estate is crumbling. Its remaining residents, Emily, her shell-shocked son Roderick, and sturdy, unmarried daughter Caroline, make an ill-fated decision to host a party to re-establish themselves in the social scene of Warwickshire, England. The evening's tragedy and reconnection with country doctor Faraday, once a child of a servant in the house, sets in motion a series of tragedies that bring to life long-buried secrets and poltergeists. Gothically good to its final chilling page. Recommended by Kelly
