Praise for Shadow Garden

“Alexandra Burt’s latest is a haunted and haunting read, rendered with her usual gift for psychological detail in stunningly atmospheric prose. In the gothic tradition of Rebecca, The Yellow Wallpaper, and The Bad Seed, Shadow Garden plunges readers into a clammy, chilly fog on every page. I won’t soon forget the ending, and neither will you.”–Amy Gentry, bestselling author of Good as Gone and Last Woman Standing
“Shadow Garden is a beautifully haunting novel about an outwardly successful but privately troubled family. I was gripped from the start, entranced by the evocative writing and the complex characters. It’s the sort of story that stays with you, long after you’ve reached the final page and closed the book.”—Emma Rous, USA Today Bestselling author of The Au Pair
“Alexandra Burt’s, Shadow Garden, is a haunting, cautionary tale of a family’s descent into madness; exposing the darkness that lies beneath the comforting facade of wealth, privilege and a mother’s obsessive love.”–Kathleen Kent, New York Times bestselling author of The Heretic’s Daughter  
“Just when you think you know which way is up, another member of the Pryor family steps in to prove you wrong. Shadow Garden is a gripping, head-spinning tale that left me feeling like I’d caught the madness on its pages. A delicious, devious ride.”–Stephanie Wrobel, author of Darling Rose Gold
“Domestic horror is at its scariest when seen ‘through a glass, darkly.’ Such is the predicament for Donna Pryor, whose best intentions at finding clarity are hobbled not by schemes, but by truths too horrible for the mind to handle. Burt’s writing is sensual and mysterious―verdant paths lined with haunting fog. Perfect for anyone who loves getting lost in the maze of memory, or interested in the stories that we tell, mostly to ourselves.”–Robert Ashcroft, author of Megarothke

“…[an] intimate, often lyrical thriller….Fans of domestic suspense will be satisfied.”—Publishers Weekly
