by Barbara Erskine



Joss Grant’s family tree. It was an old grey building with gabled roofs and mullioned windows, the plastered walls covered in ivy and wisteria and scarlet Virginia creeper. She stood quite still, staring.

Joss Grant’s family tree. A beam of cold sunshine finds its way through a knot hole in the wood of the shutters and strays across the dusty boards. Laser like, it creeps from right to left until it reaches the flower lying in its path. One by one, in the spotlight, the petals fall open, their thin creamy whiteness already edged with brown. In the silence the skirt skimming over the boards makes no sound; the footsteps from the past are quiet.

Books related to House of Echoes. Loved it as much as i have the other novels from this gifted author. Keep up the brilliant writing. On the Edge of Darkness.

Jocelyn Grant, along with her family, moves into the house where her two young brothers died years before and finds that whatever killed them is still haunting the house and her family

Something terrible once happened at Belheddon hall.

It happened long ago, and the people caught up in the horrific events are long dead.

But the ghosts, the echoes, linger on.

Joss Grant was adopted as a baby, and she never had much of a desire to learn about her birth parents, until her own son was born. She finally tracks down a name, and a last known address of her birth mother. She is surprised when that address takes her to a beautiful old English manor house in the tiny village of Belheddon, and at first, delighted with the ghost stories that come with it. The villagers even believe that the devil lives there himself. The initial disappointment that her birth mother is dead is gotten over quickly.

As it happens, her husband Luke's engineering firm is bankrupted when his partner runs off with the cash, and they are forced to sell their home to pay off creditors. But all isn't lost; Joss finds out through an old parish priest, that her mother left her a letter with a lawyer, to be read only if she comes to find her seven years after her death. The letter leaves Belheddon hall to Joss.

At first she's overjoyed. The house is perfect. Luke can start a car repair business out of the driveway, she can write her novel in peace, and her adopted sister can watch her son Tom.

But things start to happen immediately. Tom complains of seeing a "tin man" in the night, and Joss finds white roses which no one else sees. Soon she discovers she's pregnant, but that isn't the reason she feels so odd.

When her son Ned is born, Joss and her sister Lyn start to notice bruises on the children. They disappear in the night and turn up in the attic. Lyn thinks Joss is hurting them, but Joss has just realized that never has a boy born in Belheddon lived to inherit the house...

This creepy ghost story was great. I loved it! It confirmed my previous decision to buy all of Barbara Erskine's books. True, the resolution at the end was a little wishy washy, and the extremely malevolent ghost seemed to give up haunting the house pretty easily, but this book is still amazing. The author is fantastic at suspense, and I was scared to read this while alone in the house. My absoulte only compaint with the book was the guy that Luke hired to help him fix classic cars, Jimbo, kept saying "I Reckon" which I think only people in cowboy movies say.

Five stars.

This is a beautifully written novel about a haunted manor in the English countryside. It is the story of a young, married woman, Jocelyn Grant, who inherits that country manor, Belheddon Hall, from her biological mother whom she never knew, as she had put her up for adoption a few months after her birth. Jocelyn, her husband, Luke, and her young son, Tom, happily move into the house, despite having heard warnings from the local townspeople that there is something quite odd about the house.

That happiness, however, soon turns to dread, as Jocelyn and her family begin to hear the laughter of young boys echoing throughout the house, as well as see physical manifestations of a knight in armour. Moreover, the scent of roses, at times, permeates the house, and someone or something keeps leaving white roses strewn throughout Belheddon Hall.

Jocelyn also begins to hear a ghostly voice calling out to someone named Katherine and finds herself being sensuously touched by someone other than her husband; someone whom she does not see, until it is too late. Her son, Tom, often sees an apparition, whom he refers to as the "tin man", and wakes up with bruises all over his body. Her fear is compounded when she realizes that no male heir has ever lived to inherit Belheddon Hall, and that the house has come down to her by strict, matrilineal descent.

Understanding the implications of her realization, and by now having two young sons about which to worry, she fights against the disbelief of her husband to combat the evil that lies at the root of the strange and frightening happenings at the Hall. How this is accomplished, and the story brought to its chilling climax, is what keeps the reader riveted to the very end. The book is absolutely gripping.

Before you purchase this book on the marketplace you should be aware that this 6 cassette edition is the entire 18 hours of the book. Back in the 20th Century, Brilliance Corp had a way of putting 3 hours on a 90 min. cassette, by separating the left and right stereo tracks. Most hand held cassette players do not have left and right balance control and you will need the adapter from Audiobookstand. I still had my adapter and so the purchase of the book at 35 cents was a bargain. As the tapes get old, the other track does tend to bleed through and so you just have to tune it out.

I don't believe the book is to long or that the ending is flat. B. E. takes the time to develop the characters [the husband who no longer can provide for his family and is in denial because he sees no way out; and the sister who longs for a husband, manor house and children of her own] and lets the horror build slowly to make it seem more real and the ending reflects the possibility of "what if this was real and not a novel". Not every novel needs to be the roller coaster ride of pulp fiction like the garish "Raiders of the Lost Ark" scene on the island where all the villains end up with their flesh melting off of them..

If you only want short, quick reading. Check out B. E.'s 3 volumes of short stories. Encounters, Distant Voices, and Sands of Time.

Erskine's Midnight is a Lonely Place is one of my favorite books, so I've picked up her others to try. This one, I just fell in love with the setting more than the characters. I wanted to return to the book just to go to the old inherited manor. The house was so believably written that I had all the rooms envisioned. The characters were believable as well, but nothing specifically drew me to them. They are a young couple just starting a family threatened by a haunted inherited house. The tale unravels about a ghost and a tragic love affair. It could have been anything haunting the house really. That part of the story just didn't stand out.
