Laura Purcell - The Silent Companions

Media of The Silent CompanionsReview by Jodie Sloan for Arts on the AU:
At its core, The Silent Companions is a wonderful and atmospheric Gothic horror. A creaking Victorian mansion, shifty and secretive servants, paintings that follow you with their eyes, it’s all here and it’s gleefully exploited by author Laura Purcell. The unfolding story is aided by a 17th century diary, an expanding cast of silent companions, and time spent with an incarcerated Elsie after the novel’s events, and the need to keep turning the pages and solve the mystery is tempered by the knowledge that something scary might be lurking in the following chapter.

Some doors are locked for a reason...
