The first in Chaz Brenchley's chilling new haunted house series - War widow Ruth Taylor arrives at RAF Morwood, the great house formerly known as D'Esperance, hoping that nursing badly wounded airmen will distract her from her sorrows.

For D'Esperance is a place of shadows and secrets - and as the strange occurrences become increasingly menacing and violent, Ruth is forced to confront a terrible possibility: that her dead husband might be the cause . . .

display_description In this WWII tale of English country-house horror, the Derleth Award–winning author "turns genre conventions to his advantage . . . genuinely disturbing" (Publishers Weekly).

As London endures the Nazi blitzkrieg, war widow Ruth Taylor accepts a post at RAF Morwood, the great house formerly known as D'Espérance. It is now an air force hospital where badly burned pilots receive experimental treatment under the care of the mysterious Major Black. Though it was not her first choice, Ruth hopes that nursing wounded airmen will distract her from her sorrows.

But as soon as she enters the house, Ruth experiences strange visions, fainting spells, and the overwhelming sensation of her late husband's ghostly presence. For D'Espérance is a place of shadows and secrets, and as the strange occurrences become increasingly menacing and violent, Ruth must confront a terrible possibility: that her dead husband's spirit might be the cause.

In the first Keys of D'Espérance novel, award-winning author Chaz Brenchley demonstrates that he "clearly knows the language and motifs of gothic country-house horror" as he brings a "complex, deeply troubled heroine" to life (Publishers Weekly).
