A haunting, dreamlike story, with characters that slowly reveal their true nature as the tale unfolds. Goody, our main character who is only identified by her title (goody = goodwife = Mrs.) and therefore is only an extension of her husband, wanders away from home to pick berries, but as you read you find that the real reasons for her trip are a little more complicated. Is what she faces in the forest a terror, or was her life until then the real horror? A good book for people who like nebulous, uncertain stories with no concrete conclusions.

After reading the synopsis and seeing this beautifully haunting cover, I was really looking forward to reading it. However, I couldn't force myself to finish this book. I read about halfway but found I was losing interest and having trouble following the story. The writing was beautiful, but I had difficulty extracting a clear understanding of the imagery and plotline. I love horror, but I didn't get a horror vibe at all from the book. I think for the right reader, In the House would be an extremely enjoyable read. And that's the tea.
