Victor Hugo's nineteen year old daughter drowned in 1843. Ten years later, Hugo began participating in seances to contact her.
I found it to be a suspenseful tale that captures the reader's attention from the beginning. This is the first book I've read from this author and found it to be a very imaginative read. It delves into the spirit world of trying to contact the dead through seances. It is truly not your typical ghost story.
I would recommend reading this very interesting book.
