House of Echoes: A Novel

House of Echoes: A Novel by Brendan Duffy


In this enthralling and atmospheric thriller, one young family’s dream of a better life is about to become a nightmare.
Ben and Caroline Tierney and their two young boys are hoping to start over. Ben has hit a dead end with his new novel, Caroline has lost her banking job, and eight-year-old Charlie is being bullied at his Manhattan school.
When Ben inherits land in the village of Swannhaven, in a remote corner of upstate New York, the Tierneys believe it’s just the break they need, and they leave behind all they know to restore a sprawling estate. But as Ben uncovers Swannhaven’s chilling secrets and Charlie ventures deeper into the surrounding forest, strange things begin to happen. The Tierneys realize that their new home isn’t the fresh start they needed . . . and that the village’s haunting saga is far from over.
House of Echoes is a novel that shows how sometimes the ties that bind us are the only things that can keep us whole.

2.0 out of 5 stars fell flatAugust 26, 2015
This review is from: House of Echoes: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This story started out interesting. I was interested in the back history of the home and where things were going. But, as it went on, the plot, the story, just dragged on and on. It got boring and I had to fight and struggle to get through this story. I wanted to love it. I wanted to enjoy this thriller. But I just couldn't. I was highly let down by the ending as well. All this build up, all this boring build up and it just fell really flat for me.
