Gerard Freeman, at age ten, sneaks into his mother s room and unlocks a secret drawer, only to find a picture of a woman he has never seen before, but one that he will find again and again His mother discovers him and gives him the beating of his life Why this excessive reaction She is a worried, paranoid, thin, and fretful type with an anxious, haunted look By tale s end, we know why. Phyllis Freeman, Gerard s mother, was happiest when speaking fondly of Staplefield, her childhood home, where there were things they didnt have in Mawson Australia , chaffinches and mayflies and foxgloves and hawthorn, coopers and farriers and old Mr Bartholomew who delivered fresh milk and eggs to their house with his horse and cart It s the sort of childhood idyll that the timid and lonely Gerard believes in and longs for He strikes up a correspondence with an English penfriend, Alice Jessel, when he is 13 and a half, living in a desolate place with a frantic mother and a silent father She is his age, her parents were killed in an accident and she has been crippled by it She now lives in an institution, whose grounds she describes as much the way Staplefield looked They go through young adulthood together, in letters only, thousands of miles apart, eventuallydeclaring their love for one another. Interwoven with the narrative of Alice and Gerard s letters are real ghost stories, the creation of Gerard s great grandmother, Viola At first, they seem to be scary Victorian tales of the supernatural Then, we see that they have a spooky way of mirroring, or preceding, events in real life, off the page Gerard comes upon them, one by one, in mysterious ways, but clearly something, or someone, is leading him The stories seem to implicate his mother in some nefarious goings on, but the truth is far worse than Gerard imagines. Any would be telling too much Turn on all the lights in the house when you settle down with this one, and plan to spend a long time reading because you will be lost in the story immediately Valerie RyanSly nods to spooky literary spinstersHenry James s Miss Jessel and Dickens s Miss Havishamset the tone for this confident debut, a gothic suspense novel with a metatextual spin Gerard Freeman grows up on the windswept southern coast of Australia in the late 20th century with a controlling mother strangely silent about the details of her childhood in England His only solace is steadfast English pen friend, Alice, to whom he confides everything What was Gerard s mother, Phyllis, hoping to escape when she left England The protagonist slowly pieces together his mother s past with the aid of short stories written by his great grandmother, Viola These cunning tales, filled with supernatural occurrences and sances, are seamlessly embedded in the main narrative, offering Gerardand readersenticing clues into his troubled family s history After Phyllis s death, her newly liberated son travels to England, hoping to learn and to pursue elusive Alice As he searches through the country house his mother inhabited long ago, Gerard finds past and present fusing in horrifying fashion In the hands of a lesser novelist, sustaining several plot lines might have been difficult But the novel links textual investigation and sublimated passion, building to a satisfying, unexpected ending Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
