    Billed as an atmospheric and chilling ghost story. This is set in the Yorkshire Moors, very much Bronte country. The descriptions of the terrain and weather are well written and capture the barren bleakness and danger of the moors. Clements employs some of the standard tropes of the ge...

    I received a free copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review. A slow-burning, atmospheric novel, with plenty of mystery. Say the words 'gothic horror' to me and you've immediately grabbed my attention. As such, I eagerly requested a copy of this book - as anything that p...

    The Coffin Path, by Katherine Clements, is a ghost story set on the edge of a lonesome moor in 1674. Its protagonist is thirty-two year old Mercy Booth who lives in the gradually decaying splendour of Scarcross Hall with her ageing father, Bartram, and his faithful servant, Agnes. Merc...

    Meh. Maybe I'm somewhat disappointed because it wasn't really what I was expecting. Whilst the writing flows and is often quite beautiful, I found this too hard going. There was plenty of atmosphere but no real sense of dread for me. And there are only so many descriptions of fleece-od...

    17th century. The Moors. A house that is said to be haunted and a stone circle where witches and the devil play. I had no idea what to believe, but something was sure going on. Mercy loves the land, her sheep, her life. She is content as it is. But her dad is loosing it and then thi...

    It's the late 17th century and Mercy lives a remote life on the Yorkshire Moors with her father, servant, and the men who work her land. There are stories of hauntings and mysterious happenings but Mercy has thoughts only for her sheep and her land. But then she starts to hear strange ...

    I would like to thank Headline and Netgalley for and ARC of this book. The Coffin path is a 17th Century ghost story set in the Yorkshire moors. Where Mercy and Father Bertram Booth live in a place called Scarcross Hall just off the coffin path. Where she has lived all her life. Where...

    The Coffin Path is an eerie tale that takes place on the Yorkshire Moors in the 17th century. It?s a hard place to live, the bleakness, the years after the war and its in a remote area that is reliant on good weather to make a decent living. And there is a rumour that has never gone ...

    Set in the 17th century on the eerie Yorkshire Moors. Meet Mercy, she lives with her father Bartram Booth and Agnes in Scarcross Hall. They are in the heart of the sheep community and part of a close-knit of herders, shepherds and locals. But when a stranger appears looking for work, i...

    A solid historical ghost story that is actually a great Halloween read, should you be looking for one. The plot of the Coffin Path is rock solid and has a few surprises up its sleeve but for me it was the writing that truly shines here. Without using overly flowery prose, Clements ...

    Very good, though it did go on a little too long. I feel like the tension was lost a bit in the slower pace, but otherwise it was a great, atmospheric, Gothic read. ...

    creepy, chilling and compelling! That's how I'd sum up this dark tale from Katherine Clements! You can't get a better setting than an old house set on the moors and that is where you'll find Scarcross Hall, which is home to Mercy and her father. The moors are all she's ever known an...

    I don't know what to think about this book. On the cover it says, 'spine tingling', but I was at the end of the novel and nothing had tingled. It felt a bit flat and I didn't like the ending at all. I'm sure there are people who loved it, so I'll leave the reviewing to someone who ca...

    I was underwhelmed with this, it didn't really live up to what I was expecting. There were a few spooky bits, lots of stuff about sheep, and a rather tedious story line. Not really what I would describe as "horror", which is how my library has it categorised. ...

    The Yorkshire moors are in Mercy Booth's blood. As is the crumbling, isolated Scarcross Hall - her childhood home. And she will do anything to remain there. Anything... Religion, love and death stalk the pages of Katherine Clements' deeply atmospheric, ghostly yarn. Rich in historic...

    Living at Scarcross has never been easy for Mercy, but it is about to get considerably harder. Now, I must confess that I don?t usually read books marketed in the ghost or horror genre as I find them too unsettling, but The Coffin Path was a perfect read for me with just the right...

    "One coin marks the first to go. A second bodes the fall. The third will seal a sinner's fate. The Devil take them all." I've been reading quite a lot of short ghost stories recently, I like M.R. James, Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. So when The Coffin Path cropped up on Net...

    Very good, though it did go on a little too long. I feel like the tension was lost a bit in the slower pace, but otherwise it was a great, atmospheric, Gothic read. ...

    creepy, chilling and compelling! That's how I'd sum up this dark tale from Katherine Clements! You can't get a better setting than an old house set on the moors and that is where you'll find Scarcross Hall, which is home to Mercy and her father. The moors are all she's ever known an...

    I don't know what to think about this book. On the cover it says, 'spine tingling', but I was at the end of the novel and nothing had tingled. It felt a bit flat and I didn't like the ending at all. I'm sure there are people who loved it, so I'll leave the reviewing to someone who ca...

    I was underwhelmed with this, it didn't really live up to what I was expecting. There were a few spooky bits, lots of stuff about sheep, and a rather tedious story line. Not really what I would describe as "horror", which is how my library has it categorised. ...

    The Yorkshire moors are in Mercy Booth's blood. As is the crumbling, isolated Scarcross Hall - her childhood home. And she will do anything to remain there. Anything... Religion, love and death stalk the pages of Katherine Clements' deeply atmospheric, ghostly yarn. Rich in historic...

    The Coffin Path is an eerie tale that takes place on the Yorkshire Moors in the 17th century. It?s a hard place to live, the bleakness, the years after the war and its in a remote area that is reliant on good weather to make a decent living. And there is a rumour that has never gone ...

    Set in the 17th century on the eerie Yorkshire Moors. Meet Mercy, she lives with her father Bartram Booth and Agnes in Scarcross Hall. They are in the heart of the sheep community and part of a close-knit of herders, shepherds and locals. But when a stranger appears looking for work, i...

    A solid historical ghost story that is actually a great Halloween read, should you be looking for one. The plot of the Coffin Path is rock solid and has a few surprises up its sleeve but for me it was the writing that truly shines here. Without using overly flowery prose, Clements ...

    Very good, though it did go on a little too long. I feel like the tension was lost a bit in the slower pace, but otherwise it was a great, atmospheric, Gothic read. ...

    creepy, chilling and compelling! That's how I'd sum up this dark tale from Katherine Clements! You can't get a better setting than an old house set on the moors and that is where you'll find Scarcross Hall, which is home to Mercy and her father. The moors are all she's ever known an...

    I don't know what to think about this book. On the cover it says, 'spine tingling', but I was at the end of the novel and nothing had tingled. It felt a bit flat and I didn't like the ending at all. I'm sure there are people who loved it, so I'll leave the reviewing to someone who ca...

    I was underwhelmed with this, it didn't really live up to what I was expecting. There were a few spooky bits, lots of stuff about sheep, and a rather tedious story line. Not really what I would describe as "horror", which is how my library has it categorised. ...

    The Yorkshire moors are in Mercy Booth's blood. As is the crumbling, isolated Scarcross Hall - her childhood home. And she will do anything to remain there. Anything... Religion, love and death stalk the pages of Katherine Clements' deeply atmospheric, ghostly yarn. Rich in historic...

    Living at Scarcross has never been easy for Mercy, but it is about to get considerably harder. Now, I must confess that I don?t usually read books marketed in the ghost or horror genre as I find them too unsettling, but The Coffin Path was a perfect read for me with just the right...
