Lay Me To Rest
Some secrets never stay buried for long…
Devastated by the death of her husband, Annie Philips is shocked to discover she is pregnant with his unborn child. Hoping for a fresh start, she travels to a remote stone cottage in Anglesey, amidst the white-capped mountains of North Wales.
She settles in quickly, helped by her mysterious new neighbour, Peter. But everything changes when Annie discovers a small wooden box, inlaid with brass and mother-of-pearl. A box she was never supposed to find…
Annie soon realises that she isn’t alone in the cottage. And now she’s trapped. Can she escape the nightmare that she has awoken, or will the dark forces surrounding the house claim her life – and that of her baby?
A gripping thriller from E. A. Clark, perfect for fans of Kerri Wilkinson, Sarah Wray and Stella Duffy. You won’t be able to put it down!
Purchase from Amazon UK:
It’s a big five stars from me – I know I have been handing these out a fair bit lately, but I really have had some cracking reads recently. This book centres on tragic figure Annie Phillips, widowed and newly pregnant. Thee is a book enough just in that, but when her sister tries to give her a change of scene, that’s when all hell breaks loose!
This book is deliciously creepy, with more than a few hairs standing on end moments, and the writing is beautiful too. Clark has a wonderful writing voice that enchanted me from the off. This is a cracking book, and the ending did make me wonder…what comes next? The cover is gorgeous too, isn’t it? It’s only 99p at the moment too!
About E. A. Clark
E. A. Clark lives Itin the Midlands with her husband and son, plus a rather temperamental cat, a rabbit and a chinchilla. She has three (now grown-up) children and five grandchildren. She is particularly partial to Italian food, decent red wine (or any coloured wine come to that …) and cake – and has been known to over-indulge in each on occasions.
She has a penchant for visiting old graveyards and speculating on the demise of those entombed beneath. Whilst she has written short stories and poetry for many years, a lifelong fascination with all things paranormal has culminated in her first novel for adults, Lay Me to Rest. The setting is inspired by her love of Wales, owing to her father’s Celtic roots.
