Fans of Susan Hill’s “The Woman in Black” and Alejandro Amenábar’s “The Others” will be eager to read this contemporary ghost story. Written in the tradition of classic English ghost tales, “Winterbay Abbey” is an unsettling Gothic thriller.
Will Larson has one last chance to save his stagnant career as an architect: design a grand restoration for a long-abandoned abbey. Looming above the breathtaking, windswept coast of Maine, Winterbay Abbey offers a picturesque spot for a charming hotel. But the locals harbor a peculiar distaste for the ruined Gothic convent.
After witnessing a drowning within sight of the abbey, Will wonders why the police seem disinterested in the case. He begins looking deeper into the incident, gradually uncovering chilling secrets behind the old nunnery’s walls. Will’s wife, Emily, becomes convinced the drowning is a ghostly replay of a forgotten death. But their investigation into the abbey’s frightening history soon becomes a tragic struggle to escape Winterbay’s dark curse.
