It begins in the summer of 1891 with Henry Featherling catching a train to go visit his uncle at Bittersweet Lodge. Aboard the train he meets a wonderfully friendly brother and sister named Justice and Clemency,respectively. As a bonus Henry finds that they are disembarking in the same town as he- Berwick. Arrangements are made so they can visit each other while they're all in town.
From there the story accelerates and never looks back. A marriage, a death and strange doings all follow from there. This novella put me in mind of old school stories such as those written by Poe. In fact, Poe is brought up a few times throughout this novella.
In the style of a few Henry James stories, this one doesn't present itself all tied up with a neat little bow at the end. However, if you enjoy stories like James' The Turn of the Screw, I think this story is for you.
Disclosure: I won this novella as a result of attending an online Darkfuse Meet the Author event.
