A Ghost Story

Sadie Jones's new novel, The Uninvited Guests,has all the pleasures of a classic ghost story. The rambling English country house, the storm, the uninvited guests,all promise reading delight. The story takes place in 1912, at a birthday party for Emerald Torrington, her twentieth. All is in readiness,with the kitchen preparing a feast. A few miles away a dreadful train accident happens and the survivors arrive at the house, looking for help. From there the proper night of a young woman's party goes dreadfully awry. A fun read with intelligent writing and a twist at the end. ML
