The Ghost Woods – C.J. Cooke – 21.11.11

I quite liked this book. It is a period piece, about girls sent to a mother and baby home with some unpleasant and eerie secrets. At the beginning of the book, the main character has no memory of how she came to be pregnant and the book slowly unravels her repressed memories along with the secrets of the house. There are some supernatural and magical realism elements, and it is quite spooky, but I didn’t love it as I found myself getting a bit bored of it all in the middle and I was glad when it was finally over.
