Waiting on Wednesday - Bellman & Black; Diane Setterfield
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pick is from an author I've enjoyed in the past
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Thirteenth Tale comes a dark and mesmerizing ghost story guaranteed to haunt you to your very core.
a boy, William Bellman commits one small, cruel act: killing a bird
with his slingshot. Little does he know the unforeseen and terrible
consequences of the deed, which is soon forgotten amidst the riot of
boyhood games. By the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his
own, William seems to be a man blessed by fortune—until tragedy strikes
and the stranger in black comes. Then he starts to wonder if all his
happiness is about to be eclipsed. Desperate to save the one precious
thing he has left, William enters into a rather strange bargain, with an
even stranger partner, to found a decidedly macabre business.
