Charlie Benton is studying Genealogy and English Local History at Leicester University. As part of his course work, he decides to research his own family tree and discovers his great-great-great-grandfather George Anderson, a local parish vicar, was murdered during a violent attack and robbery at his church in Kent. As Charlie delves deeper into his family’s past, he becomes increasingly disturbed by a series of bizarre hallucinations and imaginings causing his thoughts and grip on life to veer dramatically between fantasy and reality.In an effort to rid himself of these strange visitations, Charlie journeys to Kent to discover more about this brutal episode in his family’s history and of the circumstances leading up to the alleged murder of his long-departed ancestor.Can Charlie uncover the facts about what really happened on that fateful day, or is there something darker still to be revealed that will dramatically alter the course of his life forever?

    The characters seem to be fleshed out decently. Charlie seems to be a kid raised well and I love his determination. You feel bad for the kid and his plight.

    At times, the story felt boring, but there were interesting bits to make up for it. The language is simple. You can find supernatural elements, English history, beautiful countrysides and yummy food descriptions. I felt like packing my bags and visiting Kent.

    The story comes to a sudden halt and left me checking if I had lost any pages or not. Well, I have mixed feelings about this book and I have my theory about the ending. Now it is up to you to read and find out what happened. If you are into history and the countryside, pick up this book next.
