Description

LIES, TREACHERY AND DECEIT AND SOMETHING MUCH, MUCH DARKER. A fictional ghost story of the haunting of the house in Gallows Lane. PRESENT: A young couple, while traveling in their camper van, come across a big, old, empty house hidden behind an overgrown and chaotic garden, unaware that it is haunted by one of its previous occupants. BEFORE: Magdalena was a beautiful, sophisticated and talented musician and sculptress, living a privileged lifestyle with her debonair husband, ten-year-old daughter and six-year-old son, in Juniper House in Gallows Lane. When her husband and son disappear without trace in the 1950's it has a devastating effect on her from which she never recovers. Finally abandoned by her daughter, and living a reclusive life alone in the house, she waits in vain for her son to come home. But in her old age, the estranged daughter returns to have her sectioned and to claim her inheritance and Magdalena spends the remaining years of her life as an old woman locked away in an asylum. But when she dies she returns to Juniper House to haunt the daughter, eventually driving her insane so that she too suffers the same fate. PRESENT: When the young couple buy the house and begin to renovate it, unknown forces start to drive a wedge between them and soon they begin to drift apart. Sinister things start to happen and they unearth a secret which has remained a mystery for decades.show more

About Peppi Hilton

Peppi Hilton has been writing for many years under different pseudonyms, her favorite genre being comedy. She has written romance novels, and poetry and many comedy scripts and her latest genre, under the current pseudonym, is Ghost and Horror. Many different experiences have led to her inspiration for writing ghost stories, and Magdalena's Ghost is no exception. Her other book in this genre is THE APPOINTMENT, which is a more chilling and scary story - no ghouls or zombies - just purely an evil ghost with a gruesome past. The author is currently revamping a romance written a couple of decades ago, and that will soon be published, and after that look out for THE OLD CHAPEL HAUNTINGS, ghosts in the graveyard, set in Ireland and guaranteed to scare. Her daytime business, as an entrepreneur, is completely unconnected but experiences from it have contributed to inspiring her to write many of her books. She lives with her partner and gorgeous moggy in a large Edwardian country house, with sheep and cows and lots of other four legged and feathered friends as the only neighbours.
