"The Voice Upstairs is a compelling and haunting story that more than delivers on its delicious premise of "Downton Abbey with Ghosts". The upstairs/downstairs dynamics were masterfully done, and I was incredibly invested in Edison and Wil's romance. Grim yet hopeful, fierce but quiet, The Voice Upstairs brims with vivid imagery, sharply-drawn characters, and a fascinating plot that will keep you turning pages through every horrific reveal to the immensely satisfying conclusion. Don't miss Weymouth's latest triumph."--Joanna Ruth Meyer, author of Echo North and Into the Heartless Wood
"This is the kind of book that keeps whispering in your ear long after you've set it down. Haunting from start to finish."

--Scott Reintgen, bestselling author of A Door in the Dark
"A wealthy family in decline must reckon with the girl who can sense their hauntings both literal and figurative. Set against the backdrop of postwar Britain and the turbulent upheaval of the social classes, The Voice Upstairs is a chilling look at power, family, and one girl's quest to find the truth." --Harry Szabo, author of What Big Teeth
"Compellingly drawn characters, immersive writing, and as many narrative surprises as there are secret corners of Wither Grange. What a comfort to pick up a Weymouth novel, always knowing it will be wonderful."--Anna Bright, author of The Beholder and The Boundless
"A twisty murder mystery told with Laura Weymouth's signature poetic prose, The Voice Upstairs is a must for fantasy readers, and anyone who loves their stories cozy and spooky in equal measure."--Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf and For the Throne
"Weymouth (A Consuming Fire) skillfully conveys a growing sense of dread via the eerie, unsettling landscape and gradually escalating supernatural happenings; the charming dynamic between Wil and Ed further helps to bolster this captivating exploration of perseverance against darkness and familial trauma."--Publishers Weekly
* "Intensely atmospheric and eerie, with a killer opening hook, this is a nonstop thrill ride of visions, communing with spirits, and interactions with angry (and not-so-angry) ghosts. The deeply heartfelt central romance is enchantingly melodramatic, drawn in sharp contrast to the parental figures' muted emotions...The layered mystery blends well with the brave, clear-voiced protagonist....A compelling, secret-filled gothic tale."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
