The Rectory by Robert J. Hughes

A great summer novel set in an Orient-like North Fork setting that will sends chills up your spine!

I just bought: The Rectory by Robert J. Hughes

The Rectory is a literary ghost story that explores what happens when a young mother, whose young son has died, seeks solace in an old house by the sea. Instead she finds an old diary, an eerie book - and unexpected visitors who prey upon the grief and desperation of others.

Vita brevis,
ars longa,
occasio praeceps,
experimentum periculosum,
iudicium difficile.


Life is short,
art lives long,
chance is chancey,
experiments are tricky,
judgment even more so.
