Book Review: The Silent Companions, Laura Purcell


I’m back! No, really, I’m back (not sure where I went…but it definitely wasn’t here)!

More book reviews: this time, a Gothic thriller/ghost novel which I absolutely loved, and really did get quite spooked by! Find my full review of Laura Purcell’s The Silent Companions here at In Review, but I’ll post a little taster here as well:

There’s nothing better than a hearty ghost story to keep you on your toes. Well, maybe an actual ghost, but that is not the point here…

Laura Purcell’s The Silent Companions seems to be one such ghost story, but on reading it, this novel turns out to be so much more than just a ghost story. With the lines “The Turn of the Screw meets The Little Stranger” printed on the back cover, there was no doubt that this would be a chilling read, and definitely not one to read home alone in the early hours of the morning (not that that stopped me from doing so – which is now something I highly regret)…

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years!
