The Girl from Rawblood: A Novel - Catriona Ward

This is in the first place an attempt to write a classic gothic tale.A family, living in a lonely manor on Dartmoor,is haunted by" something ".All the right ingredients for a gothic success story and yet...the first part, although confusing due to several different timelines, was mysterious enough to keep one's attention but then the book becomes even more incoherent and messy and seems to lose all purpose...

The story  ( if ever there was one) is completely lost. Too bad because it has the right building stones....
