In a dusty post-war summer in rural Warwickshire, a doctor is called to a patient at lonely Hundreds Hall. Home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, the Georgian house, once grand and handsome, is now in decline, its masonry crumbling, its gardens choked with weeds, the clock in its stable yard permanently fixed at 20 to 9. Its owners - mother, son and daughter - are struggling to keep pace with a changing society, as well as with conflicts of their own. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life? Prepare yourself. From this wonderful lesbian writer who continues to astonish her readers, now comes a chilling ghost story. She masters a perverse hymn to decay, to the corrosive power of class resentment as well as to the damage wrought by war.
