Castle Barebain. Joan Aiken.

Castle Barebain

London: Gollancz, 1976. First edition. Firts edition (no statement, no additional printings listed). Fine in bright, crisp dust jacket. From a quiet beginning, in which Valla Montgomery, an early example of a career woman, engages to marry into one of New York's top (and stuffiest) families, then, realizing her mistake, flees to the London of the 1880s, Aiken develops a strange and chilling tale of gothic horror. Searching for her missing brother and his wife, she takes his children to a ghost-ridden castle in Scotland. Fine / fine. Item #E25355
