Publisher's summary

A small therapy group arrives at Grief House hoping that a combination of isolation and hard work will help them begin the healing process each of them so desperately needs.

But their presence has awakened something in the old dwelling. Something linked to the ancient stone megaliths at the rear of the property and a terrible crime, committed centuries before.

Before the weekend is over, the group will learn the secrets of the Grieving Stones, and come to understand the true meaning of transformation.

Excellent! Dark and brooding!

I listened to this one on audio and it was excellent. The writing was dark and brooding and the narration by Chris Barnes really added some extra atmosphere. There were some good characterizations, as well for such a quick work, which clocked in at just under 3 hours.

A field trip group therapy session to a place called Grief House may not have been the best idea. Just sayin’.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Deeply Disturbing, Heightened by the Narration

A house in the woods to serve as a grief house?? What could possible go wrong, especially next to something called the "Grieving Stones" which feed off the grief the patients in the weekend counseling session emit.

Atmospheric horror at its best, you'll be hard pressed to find a better novella in the "haunted house" genre.

Chris Barnes heightens this with his stoic delivery, drawing you into the darkness and never letting go.

This is a book to be listened to at night, with the lights off, and no other distractions.
