Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engrossing ghost story Sarah Piper accepts a job as a temporary secretary to a very fascinating young man who claims to be a ghost hunter. However when they arrive at the supposedly haunted house, it is Sarah who proves to be a medium for a very angry spirit called Maddy Clare. When another young man, Matthew, joins their search for truth, Sarah finds she must fight against a vengeful ghost and her attraction to Matthew. This gothic love story is a wonderful supernatural tale of suspense that reminds me of Velda Johnston or Norah Lofts.
