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.
Inside her new home lies a locked room, and beyond that door lies a 200-year-old diary and a deeply unsettling painted wooden figure - a Silent Companion - that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself.
As Elsie's suspicions about her husband's family grow, she discovers that those around her believe a very different story - a story of just what Elsie did to end up where she is now....

Eerie and fabulous
Would you consider the audio edition of The Silent Companions to be better than the print version?
Yes, it adds to the creepy atmosphere of the book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Silent Companions?
Too many to mention
Have you listened to any of Katie Scarfe’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Excellent narrator. She made the characters come alive.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Again, too many to mention.
Any additional comments?
This is one of the best books I have read in years. It's more creepy than scary. I was kept in the edge of my seat from start to finish. I'm really fussy and don't usually leave reviews but I can wholeheartedly recommend spending a credit on this! It's one of those books you don't want to end as you know anything you listen to next won't quite measure up. A true ghost/haunted house/gothic horror type tale.
