A truly gothic tale, set in 17th century Yorkshire, with nail-biting tension and a creeping sense of menace. The grim Pennine landscape and an isolated sheep farm just off the coffin path, rack up the chill factor and pile on the spooky atmosphere. Mercy Booth is a great character and a brave chancer - a woman ahead of her time. She pulled me into her story and onto her side - even at times against my better judgment. Wonderful storytelling.
