A Face at the Window
A NoveleBook - 2014
A haunting and powerful novel by acclaimed author Dennis McFarland about a vacationing couple that comes face to face with ghosts, both literal and figurative When their daughter leaves for college, newly minted empty nesters Cookson and Ellen Selway decide to escape the eerie quiet of their home and take a trip to London. But not long after arriving, it becomes apparent that the Selways have traded one unsettling locale for another. Like Cookson, a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, the Hotel Willerton has a disturbing past. Fifty years ago, a young girl fell to her death from one of the hotel's windows, and her ghost is haunting Cookson, slowly drawing him back toward the darkness that once consumed him. As Cookson descends into a spiral of self-destruction, he is joined by two more apparitions, each reflecting the worst parts of himself and forcing him to confront the mistakes of his past that have tormented him for years. A literary spin on the traditional ghost story, A Face at the Window is another gripping and unforgettable read by Dennis McFarland, bestselling author of The Music Room.
