The Woman Who Ran - Sam Baker

... or should I avoid this book like the plague?


I received this mystery novel through my Willoughby book club suscription and while I laid my eyes on it I thought: Well, I would never have picked up this book in a book store. The titel of the book and the cover are not appealing to me at all. And then there is the blurb:


When someone is under your skin, there is only so far you can run...She can run. But can she hide?

Helen Graham is a new arrival in a tiny Yorkshire village, renting dilapidated Wildfell Hall. The villagers are intensely curious - what makes her so jumpy and why is she so evasive? Their interest is Helen's worst nightmare. Looking over her shoulder every day, she tries to piece together her past before it can catch up with her. With everything she knows in fragments, from her marriage to her career as a war photographer, how can she work out who to trust and what to believe? Most days she can barely remember who she is...


Helen? ... Wildfell Hall? ... Apparently this book is based on The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. This tiny snippet of information peaks my curiosity enough to read this book, yet at the same time I´m pretty sure that I´m going to dislike this book immensely.


I think it would be the best for my reading health to give this book a pass and give it away to charity.
