Notes:
Newly married, newly widowed Elsie is sent to see out her pregnancy at her late husband's crumbling country estate, The Bridge. With her new servants resentful and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie only has her husband's awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. But inside her new home lies a locked room, and beyond that door lies a 200-year-old diary and a deeply unsettling painted wooden figure that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself.

Tangents book group. May 19. We couldn't decide what genre this fell into or the author's purpose. The main characters were Elsie, Sarah and Hetta. Sarah appeared meek and mild. We questioned whether Hetta was born or became evil. Some of us thought it was a bit violent and brutal, and some didn't like the jumping across time periods. We thought it was thought provoking. 4.7/10
