Book Review – The Woman in Black by Sandra Hill

The short version of my review of The Woman in Black: Well, it didn’t shit me up as much as the film did! In one way, that encapsulates most of what I want to say about the book. Because I had watched the film when it came out in the cinema, I was expecting something more directly…
