But then her father dies... and she is plunged into poverty and the workhouse becomes her miserable home.Yet Charlotte escapes, determined to find her lost brother, and her search brings her to Barras Hall, home of unknown relations where fine clothes, good food and wealth seem to promise her all she desires. But at night the horror begins - of sound and sense, surpassing all earthy terror. And Charlotte finds that daytime comfort comes at a price...and she must fulfil her terrible destiny.Praise for Jonathan Aycliffe:`Aycliffe has a fine touch' Independent`Aycliffe conjures up a feeling of dread that deepens with each unsettling incident' Time Out`Naomi's Room must rank among the finest of English ghost stories...
