A dark and beguiling gothic mystery with a touch of the supernatural, Girls of Brackenhill has everything you want in a story at this time of year: a creepy castle, long-buried secrets, mysterious townspeople, and a troubled woman who’s (literally and figuratively) haunted by her sister’s disappearance.
When Hannah’s aunt dies in a car accident, she returns to her family’s castle to help with the dying uncle her aunt left behind. But when a human bone is found near the castle, Hannah becomes convinced it belongs to her sister, who disappeared seventeen years ago.
But this is no ordinary castle. We have creepy townspeople and mysteries appearances and rooms that seem to shift within the castle walls. Just like the castle Hannah is staying in, she becomes more disoriented the longer she stays. And as she becomes more consumed by the past, she uncovers more details about what happened that summer.
A perfect gothic thriller as those dark autumn nights close in!
