Review: The Fire Child

The Fire Child The Fire Child by S.K. Tremayne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great book!
I'm not one for scary-horror books, but this one has just the right touch, the one that keeps me reading and reading and reading, just wanting to see what happens in the end.

The plot, basically, is the following: rich, handsome widower with a child marries young, pretty penniless girl 10 years his junior. He takes her to live to the crumbling family home , in the middle of nowhere, and leaves her there with his mother, son and the housekeeper.

The house is old, scary and the ghost of his first wife, who died in "mysterious circumstances" appears now and then. The little boy predicts terrible things are going to happen and the new marriage starts to fall apart.
This book has a gothic-Rebecca feel, and it's a page turner, the I-can't-put-down kind of book.

Great book, great author.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
