  • The Woman in Black

    Susan Hill

    Product Code: AACJR
    Paperback 12 years +
    In Susan Hill's unforgettable chilling novel Woman in Black, junior solicitor Arthur Kipps is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, Eel Marsh house's sole inhabitant.

    Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor is summoned to small market town Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of the reclusive widow and sole resident of Eel Marsh House, Mrs Alice Drablow. At the funeral he spots a pale young woman dressed all in black and a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, one that is only deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk about The Woman in Black - and her terrible purpose.

    While sorting through Mrs Drablow's papers in the house, Arthur is haunted by a series of unexplained noises and chilling events. Susan Hill's terrifying ghost story has been adapted into a successful West End play, and a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe hit the big screen in 2012.

These five adopted brothers and sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception for Bella. Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility makes her feel almost physically ill. He seems determined to push her away - until, that is, he saves her life from an out of control car. Bella will soon discover that there is a very good reason for Edward's coldness. He, and his family, are vampires - and he knows how dangerous it is for others to get too close.
