The bleak moors of England. The bleakest. Two spinster sisters—one desperately unhappy, the other resolutely miserable—live with their elder brother and their mastiff in a gloomy, old mansion. When a governess is summoned to their isolated home, teeming with secrets and desires, what price might they pay for love? Inspired (perhaps) by certain 19th-century gothic romances, and the sisters who wrote them, Jen Silverman’s The Moors courses with a distinctly contemporary, darkly comic sensibility.
