The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

After the body of a child is found on a stretch of Lancashire coastline known as the Loney, the narrator of this story journeys back in time to explore his own memories of the Loney forty years before. His mother insisted on taking his disabled brother Hanny there to an ancient ruin for a spiritual healing on Easter Sunday. As the family gets caught up in the lives of the locals, the two boys are drawn into the circle of a charming, good looking couple who have their own ideas about magical rites. This is a dark and sinister read, I could literally feel the dread coming off the pages. Creepy
