Riddell's blending of the realistic and supernatural elements was one of her most noticeable and successful achievements. In Essex she found the right dreary setting for The Haunted House at Latchford, "where beyond the fated house and ruined garden lay the belt of pine trees and the lake of the dismal swamp, which had furnished Crow Hall with no less than two tragedies."
Would you try another book from J. H. Riddell and/or Walter Covell?
Save your money and move on. This has to be one of the most dreadful stories I've ever listened to and a complete waste of my life that I'll never get back.
