The Crying Boy by Jane E. James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is by far the creepiest, chilling reads I have read this year to date.
Its sadness surrounds Clayton and Avril who sadly lost their little boy. They are still grieving when they decide to move house.
They take up residence in the Yorkshire moors in a home called Swallows nest.
But in the house Avril discovers a painting. This has captured her curiosity, so she explores further only to find the painting is of a boy not disimilar to her child she is grieving for and once more, the boy in the painting was deaf just like her son.
Her grief takes her on a journey including the atmospheric and chilling complex history relating to the painting that hit the papers THE CRYING BOY.
I think I have been hiding under a rock as until now, this is the first I hear of this painting which took me on a Google search.
I love this authors books, she 'does it for me everytime' keeps my intrigued, interested and alert despite having supernatural overtures in this one, which I usually steer clear of as I am easily disturbed. I was totally hooked.
Chills ran down my spine plenty of times and the hairs on the back of my neck stood out.
Fab read which I would highly recommend.
