WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Told in three alternating time lines, Wright portrays women stepping into their power and bravely facing life’s darkness in order to more fully embrace beauty and love, and she is especially mesmerizing in the personification of Castle Moreau. The castle breathes, consumes, possesses, and entraps, becoming the most withholding yet redemptive character in the novel.
Wright (The Premonition at Withers Farm) pens another delightfully creepy tale where nothing is quite as it seems and characters seek freedom from nightmares both real and imagined.
Reading is My SuperPower
“Bottom Line: The Vanishing at Castle Moreau is another deliciously atmospheric masterpiece from Jaime Jo Wright – in fact, I think it’s her best yet. Three timelines, bumps in the night, doorknobs rattling, mysterious screams, women missing, a gothic horror novelist, a hoarding grandmother … and a phantom woman with a crooked hand that ties them all together. Wright. . . not only crafts a story that will keep you spellbound but also carefully explores the depths of grief, fear, and love while pointing readers to the One who is truly a Refuge. My words don’t do it justice – put this on your must-read list without delay
