Publisher Description

“[An] extraordinary, memorable and truly haunting book.” Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Laura Purcell's The Poison Thread is now out from Penguin and The House of Whispers is forthcoming this summer!

Some doors are locked for a reason.
                 
When Elsie married handsome young heir Rupert Bainbridge, she believed she was destined for a life of luxury. But pregnant and widowed just weeks after their wedding, with her new servants resentful and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie has only her late husband’s awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. Inside her new home lies a locked door, beyond which is a painted wooden figure—a silent companion—that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself. The residents of the estate are terrified of the figure, but Elsie tries to shrug this off as simple superstition—that is, until she notices the figure’s eyes following her.

A Victorian ghost story that evokes a most unsettling kind of fear, The Silent Companions is a tale that creeps its way through the consciousness in ways you least expect—much like the companions themselves.

Slower start, but amazing!

At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to finish this book because of the slower start, but once it picked up, I couldn’t put it down! Never knew what to expect next and totally shocking ending

The silent companions

I kept reading because I wanted to find out what happened. It kept me interested, but I still cannot recommend it. Hetta takes possession of Sarah, everyone else dies and Elsie hangs. Jasper the cat, taken in by a kind soul, ends up happy and safe. At least Elsie was able to save him.

Silent Companions

Be aware - lots of animal butchery - rediculous and poorly written. She apparently just wants to be shocking, not entertaining.
