This spine-tingling novel opens in a mental hospital in the 1860s, where a patient named Elsie Bainbridge faces possible murder charges. She can't (or won't) speak, but a kindly doctor encourages her to write her story. And so unfolds Elsie's immersive tale of a pregnant young widow, struggling to keep her wits about her on her dead husband's crumbling country estate. When she discovers an antique wooden figure who looks just like her in a locked room, the eerie tension mounts. This Victorian ghost story is a shudder-inducing heart-pounder! (CH)
