Inhaltsangabe zu „What the Clocks Know“ von Rumer Haven

Twenty-six-year-old Margot sets out on a journey of self-discovery – she dumps her New York boyfriend, quits her Chicago job, and crashes at her friend’s flat in London. Rather than find herself, though, she only feels more lost. An unsettling energy affects her from the moment she enters the old Victorian residence, and she spirals into depression. Frightened and questioning her perceptions, she gradually suspects her dark emotions belong to Charlotte instead. Who is Charlotte? The name on a local gravestone could relate to Margot’s dreams and the grey woman weeping at the window.   Finding a ghost isn't what she had in mind when she went ‘soul searching’, but somehow Margot's future may depend on Charlotte's past.   Woven between 21st century and Victorian London, What the Clocks Know is a haunting story of love and identity.   "A unique tale of the paranormal – as beautiful as it is haunting." ~ Shani Struthers, author of Jessamine and the Psychic Surveys series

    After splitting up with her boyfriend, Margot decides to start over. She leaves the USA to attend university in London. Moving in with a friend seems to be a good solution. But soon she feels lost in this new and vibrating town. Instead of going to school, she remains more and more at home and gets more isolated from day to day. When she starts feeling the presence of a ghost and strange things happen to her, she slowly starts to question her own sanity – and her friends become aware of her development, too. Is she really haunted by a ghost from the past or is there a much simpler explanation to the incidences?Rumer Haven’s novel is a wonderful combination of a sentimental love story and a classic ghost haunt. It was just perfect to indulge in the plot on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The protagonist’s gloomy mood in the beginning was easily tangible; then, turning more and more depressed and starting to feel awkward and haunted were convincingly presented and easy to follow. You can feel Margot’s uneasiness in every page and effortlessly sympathize end empathize with her. This is what I appreciated most in the novel, simply finding a way in and suffering with the young woman. All in all, there was a spooky suspense which slowly developed and a convincing solution in the end.
