Peculiar Aunt Fanny goes out to the garden after a funeral. When she returns, she claims to the rest of the family that she saw the ghost of her father and he has a warning: the end of the world is coming and only those who stay in the Halloran House will survive.

Ghosts. A creepy mansion. Family drama. End of the world. Complex and devious characters. This book has all the things I like. Shirley Jackson is an absolute master at the details and her characters are always interesting (to say the least). This lesser known novel is quintessential Jackson and not to be missed!
