The uickening is above all a novel of mood It has a pleasing uality of intriguing familiarity that brings other writers and their works to mind while at the same time setting out its own uniue ambiance As an old fashioned atmospheric ghost story the author s style suggests that of a young Wilkie Collins or a less ornate Edgar Allan Poe The feel and theme of the story inevitably bring to mind Henry James classic The Turn of the Screw The isolated house and flat marshy landscape of the setting remind one of William Hope Hodgson s The House on the Borderland although Biella s story is pure horror without the science fiction elements introduced to such tales by Hodgson The intelligent cosy conversations between Fairweather and the local medic Doctor Devonald echo similar talks between those in charge in the upper class adventure novels of John Buchan The creepy spiritualist Mrs Marchant with her dramatic s ance one of the novel s most powerful scenes recalls the supernatural thrillers of Charles Williams In short The uickening rests comfortably among the works of some of the English language s most entertaining writersLawrence Fairweather a typical gentleman

Fairweather does not seem to have a job and is in fact an unambitious gentleman botanist of leisureBeneath the skilfully maintained mood this is also a psychological novel We see the thoughts and

how Mr Fairweather would think us as superstitious as savages if he could hear us And all the while little Hazel the couple s disturbed and increasingly neglected child suffers in fearful silenceThe interplay among the characters is both interesting and revealing The stolidly sensible Fairweather who rationalizes every uncanny incident contrasts with the slightly eccentric Dr Devonald who although he professes to be a man of reason admits I m afraid that we men of science are not always as rational as we d have the world believe He is as good as his word naively and irresponsibly allowing Julia an excess of drugs As for your wife well the chloral is of a benefit than a peril I assure you She s been taking it for months with no ill effects she told me so herself She has taken
