"Colette and Alison are unlikely cohorts: one a shy, drab beanpole of an assistant, the other a charismatic, corpulent psychic whose connection to the spiritual world torments her. When they meet at a fair, Alison invites Colette at once to join her on the road as her personal assistant and companion. Troubles spiral out of control when the pair moves to a suburban wasteland in what was once the English countryside. It is not long before the place beyond black threatens to uproot their lives forever"--publisher's website.

This story is disturbing and feels like a trip down a very dark rabbit hole. At the bottom of the hole is child neglect and child sexual abuse. The resolution is poor and the two main characters find a strange truth about their lives which does not suggest to the reader that they will ever recover. I would NOT recommend this book.
