Teaser: Long Lankin

Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough. Candlewick Press. 2012. Reviewed from eArc from NetGalley.

Long Lankin’s publication date is July 2012.

In 1958, two young sisters are sent to live with an aunt in a remote English village. They trigger a generations old curse, endangering the life of the younger girl.

Horror and suspense, wrapped in the perfectly described setting of 1950s England, a time still impacted by two world wars.

Here’s my short pitch: Diana Wynne Jones, by way of Stephen King, with a splash of Peter Straub thrown in.
