Hare House: An Atmospheric Modern-day Tale of Witchcraft – the Perfect Autumn Read
About this deal
I was willing to endure a certain amount of ambiguity in the hopes of seeing how everything came together at the end, but it just didn’t? When you finally find out why the narrator lost her job, the event itself and the investigation after were so improbable that I just don’t believe it would ever happen that way, even in fiction. There’s no explanation for the mysterious happenings and the book is so heavy-handed with the overall “takeaway” at the end.
In recent yearsthe Newall Heritage Trail was created: an approximate two-mile walk exploring the influence the family had on the development of Littleborough. Not all these questions are answered and I did feel a bit conflicted at the end. I wasn’t totally sure what had actually happened or why, but I think perhaps that is the point. This book very much leaves you on edge, questioning your own thoughts and feelings and seeing shadows where there are none.Very traditional which meant a little creaky and front room hard to heat up despite radiator and log burner. Property would also benefit from an iron. As we learn that our nameless narrator has fled London and her previous job at a private girls’ school in mysterious circumstances, we begin to wonder what made her sixth-form class of fresh, young girls fall down “like petals from a rose”. Who was the victim of this mass fainting? The seasoned teacher grown bitter as love turned sour, or the smirking teenage girl with a “high, light silver” laugh? whilst upstairs are three large bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms, all large and airy and with plenty of space to spread out and relax.
The following year, a Lawrence Newall – son of Lawrence Newall of Town House – is shown in ‘Burke’s Landed Gentry’ as ‘Lawrence of Hare Hill’, suggesting that the house was in place. It would have been two-storeys with a frontage similar to that at Town House.Read more: Celebrations in memory of Olympic gold medallist, Sybil 'Queenie' Fenton Newall Published: 13 August 2016 The ancient town of Chipping Norton, steeped in history and culture, is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the shadow of the Rollright Hills in this unspoilt area of Oxfordshire.
