DESCRIPTION:

Fresh from the convent, Beryl Seaton accepts a position as governess for the Brooks family. When she arrives at the family’s remote house, however, she discovers that a terrible secret is waiting for her in the nursery. Something so horrific, it chills Beryl to her core. Yet her desire to help is so strong, and so genuine, that Beryl nevertheless struggles to look after their son.

What happened to Stephen, to leave him the way he is? What happened to the previous governess at Grangehurst? And what causes the sobbing sound that seems to drift through an empty room? As Beryl’s own account of the horror continues, she asks the reader to heed her warning: do not read the twenty-eighth chapter of her story.

By the time she uncovers the awful truth about the family, and about little Stephen, it might be too late for Beryl to ever leave.

DESCRIPTION:

From the author of the bestselling Psychic Surveys series, comes a brand new series of STANDALONE novels, set in and around the WORLD’S MOST HAUNTED PLACES and BLENDING FACT WITH FICTION. In Book Two travel to Williamsfield, Pennsylvania for a stay at the very mysterious Egress Hotel…

A snowstorm, a highway, a lonely hotel…

Devastated by the deaths of her parents and disillusioned with life, Caroline Daynes is in America trying to connect with their memory. Travelling to her mother’s hometown of Williamsfield in Pennsylvania, she is caught in a snowstorm and forced to stop at The Egress hotel – somewhere she’d planned to visit as her parents honeymooned there.

From the moment she sets foot inside the lobby and meets the surly receptionist, she realises this is a hotel like no other. Charming and unique, it seems lost in time with a whole cast of compelling characters sheltering behind closed doors.

As the storm deepens, so does the mystery of The Egress. Who are these people she’s stranded with, what secrets do they hide? And, in a situation that’s becoming increasingly nightmarish, is it possible to find solace?

DESCRIPTION:

At age 36, Ben Fall is a man in torment. Overstressed, out of shape, in the middle of a bitter divorce, and carrying a secret that weighs heavily on his psyche, he’s convinced he’s a failure. He can hardly get out of bed in the morning to make his way to the high school where he teaches English. But suddenly one gray afternoon, a mousy, nondescript new girl appears in his classroom. She seems fascinated by everything he says and does–disturbingly so. Yet, though she gazes obsessively at him and hangs on his every word, she won’t even tell him her name…just that she’s “The Rain Girl.” Who is she? Where does she come from? What does she want?

Dark Regions Press presents Lullaby for the Rain Girl by Christopher Conlon as part of Dark Regions Digital. Browse all of our digital titles by searching for “dark regions digital” or “dark regions press.”

“We could call this book a ‘contemporary metaphysical mystery’ or a ‘modern fantasy,’ but it’s far more…Lullaby for the Rain Girl resonates like the Expat Paris of Hemingway in A Moveable Feast and the 1960s College Crazy of Richard Farina’s Been Down So Long Looks Like Up To Me: detailed recall of ‘what was’ interwoven with ‘what should have been.’ There’s a rough 20th century romanticism, too, something like Richard Matheson’s sensibility filtered through Henry Miller’s libidinous viewpoint. It gives us the hauntings of not-quite-ghosts, lingering regrets and remembrances, and the documentation of the results of not so wise but always human choices. It is one hell of a story told by one hell of a writer, a novel that feels more evocatively true than many memoirs.” – Mort Castle, author of Moon on the Water and The Strangers

“This powerful novel is both innovative and a fine example of world-class storytelling: it’s about life and the restless shadows it casts; it’s about death and ghosts who aren’t ghosts. Gripping, nuanced, and deep, Conlon’s novel delivers.” – John Shirley, author of Bleak History and In Extremis
