The Whispering, Sarah Rayne
Fosse House, home of the reclusive Luisa Gilmore, harbours curious secrets – including one that stretches back almost a century, to the ill-fated Palestrina Choir.
When Oxford don, Michael Flint, travels to the house to trace the origins of the long-dead Choir, he is at once aware of the property’s eerie menace. Who is the shadowy young man who tries to get into the house every night? How can his exact likeness appear in a sketch from 1917 and also a photograph from 1944? And why is Luisa so afraid when a storm makes it necessary for Michael to spend the night inside the house?
A dark fragment of the past soon begins to stir…a fragment that Michael, in the lonely old house, may not be able to fight.
