From Amazon.com:

A powerful and truly haunting debut novel from Bianca Zander with a spine-tingling hint of the gothic and supernatural, The Girl Below enthralls with a strange magic akin to the works of Audrey Niffenegger, Haruki Murakami, and Sarah Waters. Zander’s novel is a story of parents and children; of love, regret, and second chances. When a young English woman, recently returned to London after a ten-year absence, finds herself slipping back into her childhood, she must solve the mysteries of her dysfunctional family—and unearths disturbing secrets that could shatter everything she believes about who she is and her place in the world.

7 out of 10

An interesting mix of self reflection and renewal peppered with supernatural bits. The supernatural elements don't work for me at all and I found they slowed down the story though and the payoff of those elements is really underwhelming. I did like Zander's style and will consider reading more of her work - as long as it doesn't include the supernatural.
