Crimson Peak by Nancy Holder
#1
Possible spoilers

Novelization of 2015 film and script by director Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins.

Edith Cushing falls for gorgeous English baronet Sir Thomas Sharpe despite her father´s anti-English sentiments. (If privilege does not matter in America, why British stopped slavery long before you Americans, why they had no Jim Crow laws and lynchings, why your working class died in factories and mines just like in Europe....Hm.) She eventually marries him and ends in Allerdale Hall with Thomas and his icy sister Lucille.

Decrepit mansion, period costumes, beautifully lush writing, incest, madness, ghosts - it´s all very Gothic and enjoyable, if sad story. Especially tale of ghosts who haunt Allerdale Hall.
