Look Out For … The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell

Look Out For … The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell

“There’s nothing better to unsettle the soul than a good old gothic ghost story.”

Newly married, newly widowed Elsie is sent to see out her pregnancy at her late husband’s crumbling country estate, The Bridge.

With her new servants resentful and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie only has her husband’s awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. But inside her new home lies a locked room, and beyond that door lies a two-hundred-year-old diary and a deeply unsettling painted wooden figure – a Silent Companion – that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself…

Why We’re Excited About This Book:

There’s nothing better to unsettle the soul and raise the hairs on the back of your neck than a good old gothic ghost story. Set it in a crumbling mansion in the middle of nowhere and introduce an inanimate object that’s sure to be more than meets the eye and you’ve got a sure fire example of a tale to send shivers down your spine.

The Silent Companions is out on 5 October 2017 and is available from Amazon.
