Product description

Product Description

It is 1989 and thirty-year-old Laura Peterson unexpectedly inherits a house in rural Lancashire. Leaving behind her ambitious boyfriend Greg, she seizes the opportunity to take a break from the busy but unrewarding life she has in bureaucratic Brussels.

Laura’s discovery of an old silver locket hidden in the attic prompts her to find out more about the former inhabitants of the house. But the locket is more than just a pretty trinket. Under its influence Laura's dreams are haunted by the young girl who once wore the locket and her waking hours troubled by a sinister old woman in a brown coat who seems to be following her.

A series of disturbing incidents disrupt Laura's efforts to restore the gardens to their former early 20th century glory. Then one night violent storm brings an ancient oak tree crashing to the ground, revealing a tiny human skeleton, tangled in its roots. Convinced that her dreams and the discovery of the bones are connected, Laura delves deeper into the secrets of the past, unleashing a wave of powerful and frightening events which threaten both Laura and those around her.

This second edition of ‘The Silver Locket, released in January 2020, has been subject to a light edit and the correction of typos and formatting issues.
