Review of Stephen by Amy Cross

Since the age of five Beryl Seaton has lived in a convent and brought up by the Mother Superior.

But on the insistence of Mother Superior Beryl is sent out to face a world she knows very little about.

Beryl accepts a job as governess to the Brooks family to look after their baby son Stephen.

Little does Beryl know of the horrors that will unfold before her very eyes.

I sat down and read this book in one evening as I became so engrossed in it and really wanted to know what would happen next.

Beryl is to put it simply naïve and gullible after leading such a sheltered life and that adds to the feeling of fear for her as she witnessed things she never believed come have existed.

There were some genuinely horrific moments and the end contained a twist I know I had never seen coming.

If you like gripping horror stories that you can't put down then Stephen is one book you must check out.
