Compelled by curiosity, he approaches the door, and, standing before the entrance feels the unmistakable sensation of a small hand creeping into his own, 'as if a child had taken hold of it'. Intrigued by the encounter, he determines to learn more, and discovers that the owner's grandson had drowned tragically many years before.

  • The Small Hand, by Susan Hill4

    Penny Cunningham The Small hand was a very gentle ghost story, really, you will not be terrified reading it, but it is a good short story with a bit of edge to it.
    Adam Snow an antiquarian book dealer gets lost and stumbles across an old delapidated house and garden, long abandoned. As he is looking at the house he feels a small hand take hold of his, but there is no-one there, and the story begins. He is unaware of the consequences of this event and is drawn back to the house and garden, in the weeks afterwards he experiences panic attacks and a powerful feeling of being defenseless and alone. He feels the small hand in his trying to lead him to pools of water and a precepice, with determination and persistance, which terrify him The mystery continues right until the end of the book, leaving you with a feeling of sincere sadness, in an ending that does not altogether surprise you when it comes.
    A really lovely little book. by Penny Cunningham
