When Carrie buys a secondhand pram for her eagerly awaited grandchild, she becomes trapped in a horrifying nightmare world, terrorised by her own aborted baby . . . already worried that only she can see the phantom baby in the pram, Carrie is appalled when her granddaughter is placed beside it and the two merge. Unsure if she has imagined this, she tells no one. And so her nightmare begins . . . She is shocked when the phantom converses with her in her mind . . . especially when it claims to be her own aborted child. Horrified, torn between a mix of love and revulsion for her grandchild and terror of the intimidating invading spirit, Carrie doesn’t know what to do. Then she begins to see ghosts, and is convinced she is losing her mind. The mind-to-mind conversations become menacing and Carrie panics and sometimes answers the baby aloud, causing misunderstandings with her daughter. She dreads that her grandchild will never outgrow this weirdness which is becoming terrifyingly entrenched. So when her long-ago lover’s unexpected return to her life coincides with vindictive blasts of pain in her head, she can’t resist asking for his advice. He is intrigued by Carrie’s heavily censored story, and too late, she realises she has made a mistake . . . he also has a genetic link to the malevolent She must keep them apart because neither of them know that he is the father.

BETTY WOODCOCK lives in the UK, and began her working life, aged sixteen, in the analytical laboratories of ICI, before moving on to the accounts and costing department at David Browns, where she stayed until her marriage. Between raising three sons, she and her husband founded a small engineering firm producing teaching equipment, and doing subcontract work. She became an efficient machinist, together with dealing with the office side of the business. After her husband’s early death, Betty ran the firm for two years before moving to the Civil Service to work for both the Inland Revenue and the Home Office, retiring from Prison Service to follow her dream of becoming a novelist. Betty, an animal lover and an avid reader, is interested in the occult because she has actually seen ghosts—which initially was quite a shock, but very intriguing. THE PRAM is the third novel of five, and Betty is working on number six.
