I can see why Dorothy Macardle s 1941 novel The Uninvited has been resuscitated as a recovered voice by the Irish independent publisher Tramp Press It s an amusing stylish book reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier s novels or of Geoffrey Household s Rogue Male plot driven period page turners with sufficient strength and subtlety in the writing to make the experience of reading them as satisfying as reading many self consciously literary novels I suspect that you would need to be of a ghosty person than I am to enjoy this book to the full I don t mind a haunted house as a motif but I like my uncanny presences to be barely sketched as in the short stories of Hoffmann or M R James or possibly also Walter de la Mare whom Macardle intriguingly name checks here as an influence Once spirits are out in the open and the mechanics of haunting come under scrutiny my interest rather wanes What I liked very much in this novel was the prolonged pre ghost set up period when Macardle s protagonists a uietly charming twenty something Anglo Irish brother and sister Roderick and Pamela Fitzgerald fall in love with a Devonian seaside house and find themselves inexorably drawn into its spell Both characters are very well drawn as are the sharply characterized minor figures Macardle adriotly arrays around them their suave London friends Max and Judith the wonderfully named and appropriately fey theatrical couple Wendy and Peter dour Dr Scott dourer Commander Brooke the Commander s vulnerable and passionate granddaughter Stella heart of gold Irish housekeeper Lizzie etc There is apparently a famous 1944 movie of the novel which I feel I am really going to have to seek outOne thing I liked about reading this novel was making the acuaintance of the author herself who sounds an interesting figure an Irish republican briefly imprisoned during the Irish Civil War in the 1920s a journalist with the League of Nations in Czechoslovakia in the 1930s and a feminist who strongly objected against the 1937 Irish Constitution s conservative interpretation of women s role I read up about Macardle s life only after completing the novel but it definitely adds a further dimension to the text in retrospect Ideals of good and bad womanhood and maternity in particular float through the plot like wisps of ghostly ectoplasm clustering balefully around the repressed semi rebellious figure of Stella on whose choices the plot largely turns

A classic ghost storyRoddy and Pamela are brother and sister and they are searching the Devon coast to find a new home He is a playwright who wants to escape the complications of London life and she has just been released from years of caring for their sick fatherThey find the house of their dreams It stood alone not far from the edge of a cliff it was uninhabited and it appeared to have been neglected for uite some time but they saw its potential And they saw a for sale sign They find the owner an elderly man with a granddaughter just out of boarding school He seems reluctant to sell the house and reluctant to explain why but Roddy is persuasiveThe house will be theirsRoddy and Pamela are full of ideas for refurbishing the house and making it into a home and they dismiss local gossip that says that the house is haunted and that terrified tenants had fled They saw nothing amiss They invite an old family retainer Lizzie to become their housekeeper they enjoy the simple pleasures of life in the country and they make plans to invite friends to stayAll of this is wonderfully readable and utterly of its timeI liked Roddy and Pamela I found it easy to understand who they were where they were in life The sibling relationship was particularly well drawn they were a teamThey had thought things through they knew that their circumstances were likely to change that they wouldn t always want to share a home and they had made provision for thatIn between the house talk and the ghost talk there were allusions to their Irish home and it was clear that their roots and their history were important to themIt was interesting to follow sensible practical people into a ghost storyIt was obvious there was going to be a ghost story Roddy was telling the story and the substance of the book was a manuscript introduced by a letter explaining that it was an account of what had happened in DevonThat meant that a degree of suspense was lost I knew from the start that something had happened and I knew from the tone that the Fitzgerald s had been able to put whatever had happened behind themDuring a housewarming party a friend of Roddy and Pamela s is profoundly disturbed by something she sees in the mirror of the spare bedroom Roddy spends the next night in that spare bedroom and finds himself overcome by fear and foreboding And then when Roddy and Pamela away from the house Lizzie is terrified by something that she sees emerging from that room something that she can not find the words to explainThat is the turning pointThey know that something happened in that house They suspect that it involves Stella the granddaughter of the man who reluctantly sold them the house because she is drawn to them and to that roomThe story unwinds slowly as Roderick and Pamela set about uncovering the history of their home in the hope that when they know what has happened there they can somehow put things right The mystery the ghost story and the story of country life are beautifully wrapped togetherA romance grows between Roddy and Stella and that complicates the story because the house had been Stella s childhood home because the haunting of the house had its roots in a tragedy that happened then and because whenever the Fitzgerald s saw the possibility of a resolution they also saw the possibility of harm to StellaI had an idea of how the mystery would pay out at an early stage but that didn t spoil the story It was an utterly believable human tragedy and I could understood how and why it had happened And I was caught up with Roddy and Pamela as they struggled to work out what had happened and what they could what they should doThe plot was was well thought out it drew in a lovely range of people and incidents and it had things to say This story of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstance speaks of the importance of home of the roles that mothers can play and of the conseuences of their absence I d call this a very good almost great ghost storyAnd a lovely period piece
