Publisher's Summary

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 17th-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, nearer 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 best-selling author Barbara Michaels has penned a chilling tale that will keep you listening until the last minute.

Disappointed

The story was shallow with little development. And the narrator was terrible. Hard voice, inappropriate and careless inflections, just off interpretation of story. Won't purchase anything else narrated by her.

Mostly a lovestory!! But what a narrator!

The narrator nailed it!! The story wasn't my favorite of Ms. Michael's. But, pretty clever dialogue and Barbara Rosenblat brought the heroine to life! bravo!!
