"How old do you think Miss DeGroot really is?"
"Entranced and terrified, the reader of The Other is swept up in the life of a Connecticut country town in the thirties, and in the fearful mysteries that slowly darken and overwhelm it." -- from the publisher
I've seen reviews that describe this book as a quiet horror and they were right. Throughout I had a sense that something was not quite right, but didn't know what it was. Tryon's description of the area and the characters brings the reader into a very insular world where not everything is as it seems.
