ARROWOOD LAURA MCHUGH

CAN YOU EVER ESCAPE THE DARKNESS OF YOUR PAST?

Arrowood is the most ornate and beautiful of the grand historical houses that line the Mississippi river in southern Iowa where the days are long and humid and communities are small and closed. It has its own secrets and ghostly presence: it’s where two small twin girls were abducted ten years previously – never to be seen again. Now, Arden has inherited Arrowood, and she returns to her childhood home determined to establish what really happened to her sisters that traumatic summer. But the house and the surrounding town hold their secrets close – and the truth, when Arden finds it, is more devastating than she ever could have imagined. Family lies, buried secrets and a terrifying truth lie at the heart of this brilliant and haunting crime novel.

MY REVIEW

Rule one never use the Ouija board. Arden Arrowood returns to her childhood home, where her twin sisters disappeared ten years ago. The Stately home has all the ghostly sounds, that will spook you out. When Arden was a young girl she was looking after her twin sisters, playing in the garden. Arden sees Violet and Tabitha get into a gold car. At the time Harold Singer was seen taking pictures of the children playing and he had a gold car. And if Harold Singer hadn’t taken the twins, then who did and where have the twins gone?
