When Alfred and Emma Munday return from Africa they buy a house in the Dorset countryside. Their marriage is slowly disintergrating and when ghostly occurances start happening to them they don't tell each other about them. This book had great promise but didn't fulfill in my opinion. The plot was great but had a lot of sections that went nowhere. I give this book a B! ( )

An anthropologist and his wife return from Africa to live in a small British village; their failure to settle into their new life is described as a ghost story with heavy psychological overtones. Well written. ( )
