Unhallowed Ground by Gillian White

Advantages: gets better towards the end
Disadvantages: strange and slow to start

Unhallowed Ground by Gillian White. I picked up this book for just 50p from my GP surgery; they have second hand books for sale for charity. On starting to read the first chapter it seemed like the book was going to be set in history of some 200 years a ...
