Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The Fletchers' beautiful new house is everything they dreamed it would be. Built between two churches in Heptonclough, a small village on the moors that time forgot, it ought to be paradise for this young family of five, but they barely have a chance to settle in before they find that they're anything but welcome. Someone seems to be trying to drive them away--at first with silly pranks but then with threats that become increasingly dangerous, especially to the oldest child, ten-year-old Tom Fletcher, who begins to believe that someone is always watching him.

The adults in Tom's life are trying to help, including his parents; the vicar next door, younger and more dashing than you'd expect a vicar to be; and a therapist, Evi Oliver, who believes him more than she wants to. But there are other clues that something isn't quite right in Heptonclough, including the mysterious accidental deaths of three toddlers over the last ten years. It is not until Tom's siblings, two-year-old Milly and five-year-old Joe, go missing in turn that the little village's evil secret turns the Fletchers' dreams into a nightmare.

With "Sacrifice," "Awakening," and now "Blood Harvest," S. J. Bolton displays time and time again her remarkable talent as a beguiling storyteller, a master of thrills, and the mistress of her own brand of modern gothic tale.

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-15)

Bolton's third gothic mystery (after Sacrifice and Awakening) will keep readers awake at night for two reasons: it's too spooky to put down, and they are going to want to know what happens next. When the Fletcher family moves to Heptonclough, a small village on the Lancashire moors, the children are thrilled with their new home and the huge church grounds on the other side of the fence where they can roam at will.

But the family finds that the locals are a closed community, and some of their traditions seem a little bizarre. When a series of pranks played on the newcomers become increasingly more dangerous, the oldest son, Tom, starts to display seriously troubling behavior. The local vicar and a family psychiatrist become involved in the family's troubles when a grisly discovery made in the churchyard next door leaves the family and the entire town reeling.

Verdict: This suspenseful tale is sure to satisfy readers, even if it leaves them a little sleep deprived.

Book description

The Fletchers’ beautiful new house is everything they dreamed it would be. Built between two churches in Heptonclough, a small village on the moors that time forgot, it ought to be paradise for this young family of five, but they barely have a chance to settle in before they find that they’re anything but welcome. Someone seems to be trying to drive them away—at first with silly pranks but then with threats that become increasingly dangerous, especially to the oldest child, ten-year-old Tom Fletcher, who begins to believe that someone is always watching him.

The adults in Tom’s life are trying to help, including his parents; the vicar next door, younger and more dashing than you’d expect a vicar to be; and a therapist, Evi Oliver, who believes him more than she wants to. But there are other clues that something isn’t quite right in Heptonclough, including the mysterious accidental deaths of three toddlers over the last ten years. It is not until Tom’s siblings, two-year-old Milly and five-year-old Joe, go missing in turn that the little village’s evil secret turns the Fletchers’ dreams into a nightmare.

With Sacrifice, Awakening, and now Blood Harvest, S. J. Bolton displays time and time again her remarkable talent as a beguiling storyteller, a master of thrills, and the mistress of her own brand of modern gothic tale.
