The Hundred and Ninety Nine Steps by Michel Faber
The plot follows Sian who seeks refuge from her nightmares on an archaelogical dig in Whitby which sees her climb the town's 199 steps each day to work. Faber entwines a love story with mystery history and archaeolgy all set against the atmospheric background of Whitby.
