A short story with a twist - throughout centuries Oakwood has been used and exploited by its owners. Now - with the final heirs taking up residence - the house is ready to take its revenge and destroy them. More
A short story with a twist. The house called Oakwood was built centuries ago, its purpose to provide shelter and comfort for its owners and neighbours. But over the years that purpose has been corrupted and debased by the family that owns it. Unfeeling exploitation has resulted in resentment slowly seeping into the stone walls of the house, but as the last heirs move in it is time for Oakwood to take its revenge on the family. Finally, the hatred trapped within its stone walls for generations will find expression.

A terrific and properly terrifying tale with a hugely satisfying conclusion. It offers a wonderfully original take on the old adage, 'Revenge is a dish best eaten cold'. Compelling!

An excellent short story. I was hooked from the start; the characters are well drawn and the ending unexpected and very satisfying. A good read. Would thoroughly recommend.
