The Silver Locket by Holly Atkins (aka Chris Hall) is available for free download from Wed, Aug 21 – Fri, Aug 23. Folks!
When 30 year old Laura Peterson unexpectedly inherits a house in rural Lancashire, she seizes the opportunity to take a break from the busy but unrewarding life she has in bureaucratic Brussels.
Her discovery of an old silver locket hidden in the attic prompts Laura to delve into the history of the house and its former inhabitants. But the locket is more than just a pretty trinket. Under its influence Laura’s sleep becomes increasingly troubled; her dreams are haunted by the young girl who once wore the locket and her waking hours by a sinister old woman in a brown coat who seems to be following her.
Laura engages the services of a landscape gardener, Tom, to help her restore the old kitchen garden at the back of the house. Their work is hindered by a series of disturbing and unexplained incidences and when Tom tries to fell an old damaged oak tree he is almost killed.
Then a violent storm brings an ancient oak crashing to the ground and reveals a tiny human skeleton tangled in its roots. Convinced that her dreams and the discovery of the bones are connected, Laura goes in search of the truth. But the secret that has been hidden for so long is not to be given up willingly.
