Publisher's Summary

An exceptional novel of dark family secrets - danger lurks behind every shadow in Mary Stewart's classic novel of romantic suspense.

Ashley Court: the tumbledown ancestral home of the Ashley family, all blessed with 'the gift' of being able to speak to each other without words. When Bryony Ashley's father dies under mysterious circumstances, his final words a cryptic warning to her, Bryony returns from abroad to uncover Ashley Court's secrets. What did her father's message mean? What lies at the centre of the overgrown maze in the gardens? And who is trying to prevent Bryony from discovering the truth?

Tell Bryony. The cat, it's in the cat on the pavement. The map. The letter. In the brook. Tell Bryony. My little Bryony to be careful. Danger.

Alright but disappointed...

Adored Mary Stewart's earlier books, which I read from the late 1958's, and have also adored the recent new audible readings. Sadly I was disappointed with this one, being a later story I had not read. I wouldn't want to listen again. Am looking forward to the forthcoming earlier titles.

Underwhelmed

I grew up reading Mary Stewart at the recommendation of my Great Aunt and have always been fond of it but this one I just couldn't believe in. I liked the premise of the physic connection but it felt very ham-fisted in places and I just didn't like the characters.
