She Never Came Home is a perfect little ghost story for Halloween. Dorte HummelshÃ¸j Jakobsen spins a suspenseful story of Alice and her husband Peter and their little dog, Foxy as they move into an old farmhouse deep in the Danish countryside. Just why is Foxy nervous about the cupboard under the sink, what is in the bedrooms upstairs that are excluded from their tenancy agreement, and why has the house been empty for over thirty years?
Both Peter and Alice are out of work, but Peter still has to work out his notice in Germany and leaves Alice alone in the house… Alice slowly discovers the horrible truth.
I really liked this short story, with its chilling atmosphere and shocking twist at the end. In just a few pages Dorte HummelshÃ¸j Jakobsen has written such a compelling and entertaining tale.
