Lesbians! Boarding house! Retarded sister! MURDER! This book was AMAZING. Most gothic novels feature a poor girl tricked (or cornered) into marrying an evil (or homosexual, or secretly vampiric, or FOREIGN) count, and whisked away from her life of typing, bridge, and chicken salad sandwiches to become the unwilling Lady of Gothinghaven Manor, forever resigned to carrying a candelabra through the dusty halls, searching for proof that the last Lady Gothinghaven really is D-E-A-D.

Many of these things wouldn't fly today since we have become more assertive and technology is better.Nineteen year-old Cillay Montand and her fifteen year-old mentally retarded sister, Pam, who has the mental age of six, have traveled by bus to the home of their father's sister after their mother's deat [...]
