Swan's Lament

A Novella by

Swan's Lament is a chilling short story, an atmospheric English ghost story for Christmas.

In the early 1950s, winter is bitter and austere. Young war-orphan Frankie and his sister Alice have come to live in the remote fens of Cambridgeshire, where Alice is housekeeper to wealthy widower Mr Hemmings. Alice has a suitor in Mr Hemmings' gamekeeper, the handsome but unreliable Monroe, but shortly before Christmas Monroe goes missing, along with local party-girl Carolyn Cooper. As Christmas day draws closer, strange things are stirring out on the frozen marsh - inexplicable happenings which leave Frankie and Alice deeply afraid. Who is the stranger with the lamp? Whose are the footprints in the snow? And what secret is a sinister visitor determined to reveal?
Well-known for her award-winning and evocative writing on Greece and the Greek islands, here author Anne Zouroudi turns to her East Anglian heritage for inspiration.

Carrying the Kindle Single quality mark, this highly atmospheric English ghost story is perfect for readers who enjoy the classic spine-chillers of MR James and JS Le Fanu, and Susan Hill's Woman in Black.
