The House of Eyes
By Thomas Bloor.
Published in May 2002 by Hodder Children's Books
Maddie Palmer is back, plunging once more into her family's murky past to drag the truth out into the light. Why was her father a forbidden topic in the Palmer household? His name had not been spoken there for years. But Maddie is determined that she will never again be held a prisoner by her memories.
The truth lies in the past, hidden in events that took place over just a few terrible weeks. It was back in the days when Maddie had been afraid to leave the house, and it all began with the noises under the floorboards.
The House of Eyes is the prequel to the award winning novel The Memory Prisoner.
