Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer gives us an unusual view of daily life among the aristocracy in the early 1900s, a window into one woman's hidden emotional torment, and a record of the events at Rose Red that scandalised society at the time.

Review:
The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer--My Life at Rose Red, a spin-off from the Stephen King miniseries Rose Red, provides the interested reader with some terrifying back stories to Rose Red's tales of doomed psychics and Dr Joyce Reardon's expedition into the dark rooms of a house that is another of King's great Bad Places. At the beginning of the 20th century, magnate Rimbauer builds Rose Red as a present and prison for his young wife, a place in which she is to be displayed as a trophy and have her will broken. He does not know his woman--Ellen fights back with all the means at her disposal, which progressively come to include the attributes of the house he ill-advisedly built on a cursed site; people disappear in Rose Red, vanishing between one room and another, and are never seen again except as blood-smeared wraiths. They are especially likely to disappear if they are the women with whom Rimbauer humiliates his wife. This is a powerful story of a woman developing power and learning little from that responsibility except that she likes the infliction of pain and terror; we come to empathise enough with Ellen that her slow corruption is as terrifying as the nightmares that occasionally surface in her narrative. -- Roz Kaveney
