The Changelings- My title for this book This book taps into the oft repeated stories about fairy changelings. Where the fairies steal a human child & replace them with one of their own. Although why the fairies should do this is never explained. The first time I tried to read this book I found the initial chapters so creepy, I put the book away. This time, I read on. The story is still creepy but I got hooked. I actually lived in Sheffield in 1976, and well remember how dry it was, and now the Rivelin Dams' waters shrunk. I remember The fascination of seeing the drowned villages re-appear and how creepy they looked draped in water weed and crumbling. This story leaves you with the distinct impression, that there is more to our world than the rational eye can see. Again with the ghost stor. was the mother suffering from post-partum paranoia? Or was there more?
