  The Essex Serpent - Sarah Perry

Our Price: £19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

London, 1893. When Cora Seaborne's controlling husband dies, she steps into her new life as a widow with as much relief as sadness. Along with her son Francis - a curious, obsessive boy - she leaves town for Essex, in the hope that fresh air and open space will provide refuge. On arrival, rumours reach them that the mythical Essex Serpent, once said to roam the marshes claiming lives, has returned to the coastal parish of Aldwinter. Cora, a keen amateur naturalist with no patience for superstition, is enthralled, convinced that what the local people think is a magical beast may be a yet-undiscovered species. As she sets out on its trail, she is introduced to William Ransome, Aldwinter's vicar, who is also deeply suspicious of the rumours, but thinks they are a distraction from true faith. As he tries to calm his parishioners, Will and Cora strike up an intense relationship, and although they agree on absolutely nothing, they find themselves at once drawn together and torn apart, affecting each other in ways that surprise them both. The Essex Serpent is a celebration of love, and the many different shapes it can take.

2. The Haunted Martyr - Kenneth Cameron

Largeprint Our price: £19.50  - Currently in stock

The HAUNTED MARTYR plunges the American novelist Denton into the world of turn-of-the-century spiritualism, most of which is sham but which includes some very real death. It is the winter of 1902-1903. Denton has brought his lover, Janet Striker, to Naples, Italy, to recover from a near-fatal attack of typhus. Denton is using the advance from a book to pay his expenses: the book centers on spiritualism and the supernatural in Naples. (Several seances are with Eusapia Paladino, a real historical figure and an object of study by England's Society for Psychical Research.) Denton intends to write a light travel book on spiritualists, ghosts, legends and horrors, and on Naples itself. But when he tries to rent a newly-renovated palazzo and is told by the agent that he can rent it for free if he dares first spend a night there, he knows the place must be haunted. He and Janet duly see an apparition of a tall, long-armed woman, an apparition which leads inevitably to the discovery of a real body, to the story of an eccentric English peer with a terrible secret and the involvement of the Comorro - the Neapolitan mafia.
