The Winter People

The Winter People - Jennifer McMahon What a hauntingly beautiful book this is! Mc. McMahon certainly knows how to set a spooky atmosphere and keep the suspense high. It's a very chilling psychological thriller in an eerie setting. I was pulled into this story and lost all sense of my surrounding world while reading this book. It takes a special author to be able to do that.

This book was nominated for Goodreads Choice Awards Best Horror and I can see why. This is not a standard horror book but more a literary work of fiction. While the basic story is horror, there is also the exploration of the bond between a mother and child and our relationship with the dead. How far will we go to be with those we've lost through death?

So if you're looking for a deliciously scary book with a bit more substance to it, look no further.
