Doesn’t this old house give you the shivers? Maybe it’s more spooky because it’s black-and-white? Anyhow, it made me gasp! I’m beginning to work on my fifth novel, which, I assure you, isn’t spooky (well, not really!), and I came across this house photo while doing some research. I’m determined to have it be the setting for a future novel. Can’t you imagine the poor lady of the house looking out of that tower longingly? What do you think her story is? I’ll be thinking of it…

    Hello Sarah,
    If I were to write about this house, I would think back to the days when The women All dressed in long Victorian dresses, the house seems dreary and ignored by grounds keepers. I’m not sure if there was any children maybe one child because I don’t see any tree swing or anything. Maybe a lonely six year old boy.

    Family secret/tragedy?
    You think it’s really a woman watching maybe it’s a child who see’s something they’re not suppose to?
    Or a man who’s grieving?

    Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

    Re: the spooky house. Ah, but look at the loving and lavish architectural details. Somebody invested a lot of affection to the building; not so much, it seems, on the landscape. No sheltering trees.
