Product Description

Review

"...a compelling read right to the exciting climax." -- Quill & Quire

"Karleen Bradford demonstrates once again the ability to develop a pervasive mood and sustain it in a story full of intriguing characters and mystifying events." -- Children's book News, the Canadian Children's Book Centre --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Author

While driving through Wales on one of our children's school breaks we passed a gloomy old house, sitting high on a cliff. It was pouring rain. The roof of the house shone blackly, the waves crashed against the rocks far below. As far as we could tell the house was absolutely deserted.

"I have to write a ghost story about that house," I decided. So I did. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Carolyn TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Sept. 29 2013
Format: Paperback
I’m pleased to find a Canadian, <b>Karleen Bradford</b> behind such a great novel. “<b>The Haunting At Cliff House”</b>, 1985 is about Welsh neighbours who don’t elaborate on a peculiar house beyond evasive hinting. I was in anticipation of <i>Gareth’s</i> ostentatious Grandmother, alive long enough to know about <i>Alison’s</i> great-aunt and house, shedding light on the dark past that was behind her aversion to the mansion. Odd looks that she cast <i>Alison</i> foreshadowed a thrilling encounter that might feel nearly as staggering as seeing a ghost. Her character’s viewpoint would lend such tremendous history and ambiance that I was surprised it wasn’t utilized. This very enjoyable novel had room to be longer.

We are rewarded that this isn't debunked fiction stealing a paranormal title. Genuinely enchanting, ghostly, mysteries are rare. <b>Ms. Bradford’s</b> heroine is mature enough to relate to adults despite her age. Hidden places and the very valuable artifact of a diary had me riveted, culminating in a quest that is unforgettable. It’s merely odd that unravelling cataclysmic events hinged on <i>Alison</i> finishing the diary. Had she hastened and not drawn out the passages over a number of days, the crux would have come into play much sooner. It felt futile to know all she need do is see the rest of the entries. Who among us wouldn't devour a find like that in one sitting?

I like her relationship with her Dad, resembling a Welsh mystery by <i>Elizabeth Cody Kimmel</i>. The friendship with <i>Gareth</i> is solid and respectful. It’s keenly plotted that resistance to him dating <i>Gareth’s</i> sister, <i>Meiriona</i> parallels <i>Bronwen’s</i> reaction to her Father’s love interest.

"The Haunting At Cliff House" by Karleen Bradford is a wonderfully written story about the relationship between a father and a daughter.
The story is set in the heart of Wales in a house which Mr.Evans (The father) and Alison (the daughter) inherited from a Great-Aunt. This house has a spirit trapped in time haunting it. Alison sees visions of the ghosts (Bronwen) life and is directed to an old diary. This diary holds the keys to why Bronwen is trapped. Throughout the story Alison seems to be going through the exactly the same situations as the Bronwen did in 1810. Alison soon realizes what has happened to Bronwen and helps her change the past.
Throughout this plot Alison is going through tough times herself. Her mother has long since passed away and her father has found a new woman (Meiriona) who he has taken a liking to. Alison feels her territory has been invaded by Meiriona and will ruin her tight knit relationship with her father. In helping Bronwen out with her problem, Alison discovers that she can make room, she doesn't own her father, and that everyone including her father has the right to be happy.
I recommend this story to anyone who likes mystery, suspense, sentiment, and a touch of the supernatural. Karleen Bradford once again accomplishes a perfect score.

Great Ghost story for all ages Oct. 27 2011
By K. Sozaeva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When Alison's father inherits a house in Wales from a great-aunt he's never heard of, he decides there is nothing to do but to spend the summer in Wales, where he will work on his book. However, almost as soon as she walks in the door, Alison has a bad feeling about Pen-y-Craig, or Cliffhouse as it is known in the local village. Alison discovers a diary written by a former inhabitant, and also sees and hear strange things in her old room. Is Pen-y-Craig haunted? Is there something Alison needs to do?

This is a great little haunted-house story - quite short, but plenty of plot to fill the spaces. Underneath the spookiness is a neat little sub-plot about second chances that I found quite nice. Definitely a must-read for young readers who enjoy being spooked a bit, or for readers of any age.

Leaves you in suspense with every page turn, Jan. 1 2014

This book scared me to death half of the time I read this (which is not suprising due to the that I am reading this before bed).Overall,I enjoyed this very much and want to read a sequel to this even though I might have terrible thoughts and nightmares just like poor Allison did.But I might as well reassure myself that Bronwen is a good ghost (as you learn when you get closer toward the end).I must say that Karleen Bradford is now offically one of my favorite authers. :)

I won this from Library Thing and it did not disappoint. I thought this story was well written and had a great plot. I loved the descriptions of the sea and manor. This story is the perfect haunted house story for those with younger readers, those who like ghost stories with a mystery behind it, or for those who don't like scary haunted houses. I highly recommend this story to others to give it a chance, you won't be disappointed.
