Going back is never easy. Joe returns to Arnhill to take up a teaching post at his old school, a post that became available in the most awful circumstances. Tragedy is nothing new to the old mining town, which is something Joe knows all too well. When he was a child, his little sister went missing. He doted on Annie, so her disappearance was the worst thing to ever happen to him – until she came back.
The Taking of Annie Thorne is an exceedingly creepy suspense novel with a dash of the supernatural. Tudor expertly leads the reader through the past and present traumas of Joe Thorne, a man who wants nothing more than to never have to revisit his boyhood haunts.
Sometimes, the best way to deal with the past is to leave it behind and never look back. Sometimes, you just don’t get the choice.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
