Abstract:

The Silence in the Garden is the haunting story of family secrets and the legacy of the past. Sarah Pollexfen first comes to the island estate of Carriglas as a governess to her wealthy cousins, the Rollestons. It is the eve of World War I, the twilight of an era of privilege that is soon to end horribly in the trenches of France. But although Sarah is conscious of a troubling undercurrent in the seeming calm of life with the Rollestons, her days are calm, idyllic, almost magical. It is only years later, after tragedy has struck Carriglas, that she begins to learn what dark rituals have taken place there. --Book jacket.
