The Children's HomeThe Children's Home by Charles Lambert

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I loved the first three-quarters of this book with its Henry James feel and creepy set-up. After an "accident," a disfigured man retreats in his lush estate, but soon children begin showing up at the house. He takes them in and soon more children appear. The strange events remain unexplained for most of the book and the mystery builds slowly and well. However, the payoff was not at all satisfying. I appreciate what the author attempted, but it just did not work for me.
