The Sins ofRachel Ellis

(1978)
A novel by

 
Pandora is a sweet, bright, sixteen-year-old girl when she leaves her parents in London to spend the summer in Wales with her great-great aunt Rachel. Since she knows Rachel Ellis is very old, Pandora is surprised when she meets a youthful woman who doesn't look more than forty years old. Naturally inquisitive, Pandora sets out to explore the surrounding countryside, only to discover that her aunt is feared by the local townspeople because of her inexplicable youth and because her strange gardener, Ewen, has an eerie, seductive power over the village women.

Protected only with her innocence, Pandora searches for her aunt's dark secret in an atmosphere of fear, suspicion, and ageless evil. As this gripping tale builds to its chilling climax, Pandora must answer the terrifying questions that confront her: Just what does Rachel Ellis want from her? Why does Ewen look at her that way; why does he come to her room at night? Why does she find herself drawn to his power in spite of her fear? What is hidden behind the boarded-up doorway to the top floor of the mansion? And why does the ghostly apparition of a child beckon to her from the lawn in the night?

After this summer, Pandora will never be the same.

The Sins of Rachel Ellis by Philip Caveney is a novel of inescapable terror--the explosive story of a child's soul in peril.
