Description
The “clever and wonderfully chilling” (Fiona Barton) suspense novel from the award-winning author of The Haunting of Maddy Clare...
Vermont, 1950. There's a place for the girls whom no one wants—the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It's called Idlewild Hall. And in the small town where it's located, there are rumors that the boarding school is haunted. Four roommates bond over their whispered fears, their budding friendship blossoming—until one of them mysteriously disappears... 
Vermont, 2014. As much as she's tried, journalist Fiona Sheridan cannot stop revisiting the events surrounding her older sister's death. Twenty years ago, her body was found lying in the overgrown fields near the ruins of Idlewild Hall. And though her sister's boyfriend was tried and convicted of murder, Fiona can't shake the suspicion that something was never right about the case.
When Fiona discovers that Idlewild Hall is being restored by an anonymous benefactor, she decides to write a story about it. But a shocking discovery during the renovations will link the loss of her sister to secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the past—and a voice that won't be silenced...

      • content: Rebecca Lowman voices this split-time ghost story beautifully--perhaps "hauntingly" would be a better word. In 1950, four troubled girls bond at a boarding school for girls whose families want to forget them. In 2014, the now derelict school is being restored, and journalist Fiona Sheridan is determined to find out why. The site is where the body of her murdered sister was found years before. As the excavation progresses, another body is discovered: that of a missing schoolgirl from the 1950s. Lowman moves smoothly from the frightened, neglected girls and the determined, prickly Fiona. Does the ghost of Mary Hand, whose apparition in the 1950s so added to the girls' misery, still walk in 2014? Can she now be laid to rest? C.A.T. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
