    The Absolutist by John Boyne - It is September 1919: twenty-one-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from London to Norwich to deliver a package of letters to the sister of Will Bancroft, the man he fought alongside during the Great War. But the letters are not the real reason for Tristan's visit. He can no longer keep a secret and has finally found the courage to unburden himself of it.

This House is Haunted by John Boyne. Pinner writes: "Soon after Eliza arrives at Gaudlin Hall as the new governess, she realizes something is very wrong. Other than the children now in her care, the hall is completely devoid of any other living presence. Yet something evil lurks there. The only way she can survive the terror is to confront the hall’s past. A haunting Dickensian ghost story. A great book to read on a dark and stormy night!"
