‘The Hoarder by Jess Kidd’

Maud is employed to look after Cathal, a difficult and eccentric old man who lives in a mansion choked with stuff. The house appears to be haunted and there is a mystery to be solved.

The novel has a Gothic flavour. Many of the passages were vivid and colourful and, we felt, sometimes over-long. It was not our most popular read and not everyone managed to get through it.
