Historical Fiction Friday

The cover for this book reminds me of Halloween. In fact it kinda creeps me out. So I decided to showcase it today since it is the first of October.

Young Tabby Aykroyd has been brought to the dusty mansion of Seldom House to be nursemaid to a foundling boy. He is a savage little creature, but the Yorkshire moors harbor far worse, as Tabby soon discovers. Why do scores of dead maids and masters haunt Seldom House with a jealous devotion that extends beyond the grave?

As Tabby struggles to escape the evil forces rising out of the land, she watches her young charge choose a different path. Long before he reaches the old farmhouse of Wuthering Heights, the boy who will become Heathcliff has doomed himself and any who try to befriend him.

*shivers* The cover reminds me of that movie... The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Laina, I hadn't thought about that!

I was able to snag a copy from Amazon Vine. A review will be upcoming. If the book is anything like the cover I think I'll be freaked out. No reading this at night!
