For years, Heather Tradescant had dreamed of the journey she and her father would take to England—a pilgrimage to the great gardens of history. Now that her father is dead, Heather is determined to fulfill his dreams. Unfortunately, her request to see the fabled seventeenth-century garden of Troytan House is denied by the owner. Though unwelcome, she braves the walls of briars and reaches the Victorian manor house beyond. She senses a strange mission of evil lurking, tainting the manor’s peaceful beauty. Only then does Heather begin to wonder whether it is only stories of long-vanished witchcraft that haunt Troytan House or whether there is some more modern horror, hearer at hand, and far, far more dangerous.

Continuing in the classic tradition she established with such acclaimed novels of suspense as Stitches in Time, Vanish with the Rose, and House of Stone, New York Times bestselling author Barbara Michaels has penned a chilling tale.

    " I've never read Barbara Michaels before but now I want to read more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/8/2014

    " It was ok. Good story but the ending was too "quick" and sort of predictable. Not the usual surprise you get with Barbara Michaels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/7/2014

    " ok, so this was good..... I didn't have it figured out until the very end... but some of the loose ends were not tied up. I'm still not sure why some things happened, or even how some things happened. But it was a good fast mystery/supernatural read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Cristiani | 1/5/2014

    " An absolutely ideal book for me - fun, with an element of the supernatural, intellectual, mysterious, romantic but not too predictable. I adore the witty repartee among the characters. That sarcasm is a sign of smart people who are comfortable with each other. I also love how Michaels' heroines are knowledgeable, independant, and imperfect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Cowher-dejesus | 1/4/2014

    " Loved this! Kept me guessing to the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn F. | 2/11/2013

    " This ended up being a really good book. The hero Jordan acted liked she is an annoying younger sister in the beginning, and then they ended up falling in love. I enjoyed this book. "

    " I have never read a book by Barbara Michaels, but the reviews on her other books drew me to this one. I was shocked at the ending. I really didn't see it coming. I love when a story does that! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Myndi | 5/12/2012

    " Honestly, this book was so boring that I couldn't bring myself to finish it. A long time ago, I read a few novels by this author and remember liking them, but this was a disappointment. Flat characters, unclear story line. "

    " It's not Barbara Michaels' best, but Barbara Rosenblat is SO fantastic a reader, it makes it worth it. She reads the Amelias and deserves every award she ever earns (and then some). (She also reads the Mrs. Pollifaxes.) "

    " A strange book, which jumped about a little and had an odd number of plotting problems. Neither did I find it that gripping, and the final romantic denoument was somewhat unlikely! "
