“The House on Blackstone Moor” blew me away. This book is so intensely dark and twisted and will take you on a journey that will change you forever. Rose, is a young woman who goes through hell and back nearly literally after her family is brutally murdered by the hands of her own father.
After years of being tortured in many ways by her demented father she loses her whole family and before she knows what is happening she is admitted to an insane asylum. She doesn’t know where to turn and who to trust. She just focuses on getting out of the hell whole which she calls home for the time being. The only person she really confides is her doctor, Dr. Bannion and he gets her a job outside of the asylum. She is a governess to a well-established family.
After she moves in with this family and begins to take care of the children she slowly starts to realize things that are very strange. The problem is she has nowhere else to go and she simply adores the children. Something urges her to stay especially she has no family and everyone is convinced she is crazy.
This book is so intriguing and dark. It contains so many gothic elements and there are so many twists and turns that you will have absolutely no idea what is going to happen next. It is in a certain way a paranormal romance but definitely a lot different from the other commons book stories. I truly could not put this book down. I finished it in three days and that is how the book has captivated me,. It is an amazing book and deliciously dark. I loved it.
