Carol Goodman, THE WIDOW’S HOUSE
Old ideas can be made new again with fine writing. This is demonstrated when Goodman takes the trope of a young couple moving into an old haunted house and gives it a spin that keeps us guessing until the end. With a delicate combination of the mysterious and the possibly paranormal, we are left wondering, along with the protagonist, as to what is real and what is imaginary.
A blend of the gothic and the modern, this story is a treat for those of us who enjoy an occasional shiver down the spine.
