TUESDAY, March 3 rd- Woman in Black by Susan Hill - Fiction MECHANICS’ HALL LIBRARY-First Tuesday Book Club
The Woman in Black
"An excellent ghost story... magnificently eerie... compulsive reading." —Evening Standard
“The classic ghost story by Susan Hill: a chilling tale about a menacing spectre haunting a small English town.
Arthur Kipps is an up-and-coming London solicitor
who is sent to Crythin Gifford—a faraway town in the
windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives
Causeway—to attend the funeral and settle the
affairs of a client, Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh
House. Mrs. Drablow’s house stands at the end of
the causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but
Kipps is unaware of the tragic secrets that lie hidden
behind its sheltered windows. The routine business
trip he anticipated quickly takes a horrifying turn
when he finds himself haunted by a series of
mysterious sounds and images—a rocking chair in a deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child’s scream in the fog, and, most terrifying of all, a ghostly woman dressed all in black. Psychologically terrifying and deliciously eerie,
The Woman in Black is a remarkable thriller of the first rate”
