But on her arrival Annie quickly realizes it is a cold and dark place, still hiding many family secrets.

SEASON OF DARKNESS

Heaven's daughter Annie, a sweet and loving young woman,
has known the sort of happy home that always seemed out of her mother's reach. But a terrible, tragic car accident changes all that.

When her mysterious `great-grandfather' Tony Tatterton takes her to Farthinggale Manor, he promises to look after all her needs. But Annie pines for her lost family, most especially for Luke, her half-brother, the loving confidant of her childhood. Soon she becomes lost in the despair of the decaying mansion.

Then Annie discovers the secret cottage owned by Tony's
brother Troy, and the mystery deepens...

Gates of Paradise Reviews


Praise for Virginia Andrews:

`Beautifully written, macabre and thoroughly nasty... it is evocative of the nasty fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood and The Babes in the Wood, with a bit of Victorian Gothic thrown in. ... What does shine through is her ability to see the world through a child's eyes' Daily Express

`Makes horror irresistible' Glasgow Sunday Mail

`A gruesome saga... the storyline is compelling, many millions have no wish to put this down' Ms London

`There is strength in her books - the bizarre plots matched with the pathos of the entrapped' The Times
