“Love and grief leave unborn spirits in their wake… spirits you must will into existence, no matter how impossible it all seems.”
On a snowbound Easter Sunday, the Porlocks gather for the final time in their soon-to-be demolished family home. All Porlocks that is, except one.
As time and nature close in, the family embarks on a journey of remembrance from ancient Egypt to Victorian England and into its own troubled past, awakening long-repressed voices which refuse to be silenced.
In his debut novel, Philip Parrish delivers an absorbing psychological mystery about the nature of possession – and a haunting tribute to the enduring power of the female voice.
