This was a great read, had me hooked from the beginning and the last 100 pages were impossible to put down.

The story was rather original, told from the viewpoint of a woman who has memory problems, resulting in her being unable to remember anything much at all after a night of sleep.

Read in an 18th C) fisherman's cottage in a small village in Yorkshire, which added to the atmosphere! This is gripping with low level tension all the way through the telling. After the first section I had a bad dream which woke me up; so it's in the league of The Woman in Black etc!
