ABOUT THIS BOOK
Married couple Jack and Ali Gardiner move to a self-sufficient spiritual commune in the English Fens, desperate for fresh start. The local village is known for the witches who once resided there and Rosalind House, where the commune has been established, is a former psychiatric home, with a disturbing history.
When Jack and Ali arrive, a chain of unexpected and unexplained events is set off, and it becomes clear that they are not all that they seem. As the residents become twitchy, and the villagers suspicious, events from the past come back to haunt them, and someone is seeking retribution…
Hypnotic, disturbing, and utterly chilling, THE LINGERING by SJI Holliday is the perfect book to read in a dimly lit room, in a big empty house - that is, if you want to terrify the life out of yourself!!
Rosalind House is the perfect place to live if you want to remove yourself from the pressures and stresses of the modern world and start afresh. While the old mansion has a chequered past with whispers of witchcraft and its disturbing history as an asylum, everyone who lives here doesn't feel any lingering spirits or danger. They embrace the light and all it represents. Until Jack and Ali arrive. With the new residents, the energy of the place seems to have altered and something dark and haunted is beginning to reach to the surface, but who is in danger? And just what is everyone hiding?
From the moment I picked up THE LINGERING by SJI Holliday, I was caught hook, line, and sinker and I didn't come up for air until I turned the last page. There are moments that will make your spine tingle, and when I was faced with the way women were treated in those places in the past, I felt ill to my stomach which shows the power of this author's words. The characters are unique and while some are more likeable than others, overall the residents of Rosalind Hall appear to be harmless, just a little lost. Ali and Jack had me confused from the beginning but as the truth of why they have left their old life behind comes to the surface, it is more shocking than you can imagine.
THE LINGERING by SJI Holliday is an excellent story of mystery, darkness, and tragedy and I highly recommend it. As always, Orenda Books brings something special to the table and I cannot wait for what SJI Holliday has up her sleeve next.
Susi (S.J.I.) Holliday grew up near Edinburgh and spent many years working in her family’s newsagent and pub before studying microbiology and statistics at university. She has worked as a statistician in the pharmaceutical industry for over 16 years, but it was on a 6-month round-the-world-trip that she took with her husband 10 years ago that she rediscovered her passion for writing.
