The ancient building has been the subject of rumours for close to a century. Its owner, Edith, refused to let guests inside and rarely visited the nearby town.
Following Edith's death, her sole surviving relative, Adrienne, inherits the property. Adrienne's only possessions are a suitcase of luggage, twenty dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse.
Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home. Strange messages have been etched into the wallpaper, an old grave is hidden in the forest behind the house, and eerie portraits in the upstairs hall seem to watch her every movement.
As she uncovers more of the house's secrets, Adrienne begins to believe the whispered rumours about Ashburn may hold more truth than she ever suspected. The building has a bleak and grisly past, and as she chases the threads of a decades-old mystery, Adrienne realises she's become the prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.
Only one thing is certain: Ashburn's dead are not at rest.

A fantastic ghost story. While a little slow to start, the story quickly built momentum and turned into quite the white knuckle read. This frightful tale will leave you turning on all the lights and avoiding all mirrors. I enjoyed both reading and listening to the audio book version of the classic ghost tale. My favorite character was the fat, curious cat, Wolfgang, who does indeed play a significant role later on in the story. If you have a scary, haunted tale then I highly recommend The Haunting of Ashburn House.
