Whistler's Lane

(1974)
A novel by

 
1974. Whistler's Lane is haunted.

When a gypsy tells Sophie Woodburn her future, she doesn't believe a word of it.

The woman predicts dark strangers and violent death in her path.

She warns Sophie "The time wheel spins - your past is tomorrow, your future yesterday...beware of yesterday".

Sophie and her boyfriend, Jake Petersen, laugh off the incident.

But magical things are stirring, and dark forces are threatening to emerge from the shadows of the past...

When Sophie's aunt, Beryl Latimer, falls near her house, breaking her ankle, on the mysterious road of Whistler's Lane, Sophie goes to aid her recovery.

But something is drawing her to this mystical place, something more than her aunt, a connection to the past Sophie doesn't yet understand...

When staying in the village of Pendlemere, Sophie learns of the bloody history of Whistler's Lane, how Richard Whitaker and Lizzie Earnshaw, mercurial lovers, met their untimely deaths there and started a chain of violent murders.

Some say that Richard can be seen, ghost form, riding down Whistler's Lane, in dark winter nights...

Fainting dizzy spells and violent dreams torture Sophie as she tries to piece together the puzzle of the past, learning about the scandal of the murdered wife of Ben Starling, the handsome but dark and brooding farmer who lives nearby.

Though he was acquitted of his wife Dinah's murder, the rest of the village believe he is guilty and continue to give him a wide berth.

Sophie is drawn to Ben, but something tells her he cannot be trusted.

As her powers grow stronger, and the past threatens to overtake the present, will Sophie be able to cope with the murderous path of Whistler's Lane?
