Reviews

Praise for Susan Hill's ghost stories:'Susan Hill is the grande dame of English supernatural fiction

- Financial Times

Part of the fear she conjures up is a sense that this could happen to anyone

- Scotsman

An assuredly chilling ghost story

- Sadie Jones, Guardian

Possesses a timeless austerity ... the very simplicity of Hill's unveiling of her story in Dolly imposes an awful inevitability on the action ... suitably wintry atmospheric storytelling.

- Spectator

As accomplished and effective as the rest, not tired in the least even if there is a cunning formula at work ... Best read at night for full effect

- Independent
