Borrowing History: HPL has moved to a new
library system. Please consider using the Completed
Shelf Feature. The Completed and For Later shelf features
are great ways to track what you've borrowed and what you would like to borrow. Borrowing history is limited to 500 items to improve site
speed and performance.
Two strangers arrive in Illthwaite with the intention of digging up bits of the past that the locals would rather keep buried. Sam Flood is a young Australian whose grandmother was dispatched from Illthwaite as a child, while Miguel Madero, a drop-out from a Spanish seminary, has come to the Stranger House in pursuit of an ancestor. The antipathy between them is instant, but their paths become increasingly entangled as the tension mounts to an explosive climax. 2005.
