The Silent Companions
The Silent Companions: A Novel | Laura Purcell
When newly widowed Elsie is sent to see out her pregnancy at her late husbands crumbling country estate, The Bridge, what greets her is far from the life of wealth and privilege she was expecting . . . When Elsie married handsome young heir Rupert Bainbridge, she believed she was destined for a life of luxury. But with her husband dead just weeks after their marriage, her new servants resentful, and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie has only her husbands awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. Inside her new home lies a locked door, beyond which is a painted wooden figurea silent companionthat bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself. The residents of The Bridge are terrified of the figure, but Elsie tries to shrug this off as simple superstitionthat is, until she notices the figures eyes following her. A Victorian ghost story that evokes a most unsettling kind of fear, this is a tale that creeps its way through the consciousness in ways you least expectmuch like the silent companions themselves.

This was a pretty decent gothic tale; creepy and atmospheric. I like how the story unfolded along three different timelines. #ReadSpooky2022

I love a gothic novel, so I fully expected to love this, but, while overall I enjoyed it, I felt it could have done with some more editing. In particular, something was referred to several times in the novel but nothing was made of it, leaving it feeling as if part of the later story had been edited out but everyone forgot to edit out the earlier references. Not a bad novel, but not great either.

This didn‘t work for me at all. Didn‘t like the characters, found the lack of explanation irritating, and wasn‘t the least bit creeped out. I would have DNFd, but it was a bookclub selection. I‘m in the minority though, so if gothic horror is your thing, you might like it!

This book was so creepy but I sympathized with the main character too much to allow for such an unhappy ending. Spooky, yes. Horrifying, yes. Satisfying? Not at all. Still, I feel sufficiently haunted #20in4 **edit: I haven‘t been able to stop thinking about this since I read it. Now I‘ve thought of three different interpretations, none of them pleasant, but all very interesting! #itgrowsonyou

This was my pick for the current round of #LMPBC so it‘s been a couple of months since I read it. 😳 I was pleasantly surprised at this spooky classic-feeling gothic ghost story. Sufficiently scary and pleasantly unpredictable. Not going to say much more as one of my Group K buddies probably still needs to read it.

A pick with reservations. This was suitably creepy. It hit all its marks but felt predictable. I wanted something less generic.

Now in an asylum, the story flashes back to 1865, when then recently widowed Elsie visits her husband‘s estate. The decrepit manor has a tragic and haunted past. Journal excerpts from 1635 help fill in some of its history and suggest the family Elsie married into is cursed.

Cathythoughts Good review! I enjoyed it but agree , it was a bit generic. I love the cover (edited) 9mo
Ruthiella @Cathythoughts I guess my expectations were a little too high. I rarely read spooky stuff. I googled the companions. They were a real thing, a trend in home decor from Amsterdam in the 17th century. Who knew? 😃 9mo

I'm a big fan of Gothic Horror and this was fantastic! Elsie inherits a big, creepy house after her husband dies in a mysterious circumstance in it. Her sister in law and her move into the house. There's a room in the house that remains locked, but they force their way into it, where they find lifelike wooden figures, called Companions. All of the Companions are people in the book and they all move around the house by themselves.

Freespirit Sounds spooky!! 13mo

So much atmospheric creepiness packed into this slim novel! It features layered stories (one in the 1600s, one in the 1800s). It also centers around a creepy country estate and antiques called "Silent Companions." Googled them, and they are a real thing. ?

Thanks again, @Bookish_AF! Somehow you knew just the type of book I needed at the moment! Reading to distract myself from this scary election! ?

Karisa I also found the way the author used an unreliable narrator as a feminist commentary to be thought-provoking. Again and again, women's accounts were disregarded and they stood accused. However, there was plenty of room for the possibility of evil or gaslighting. Also, the possible Hetta twist at the end was delicious! This would make a great book club pick! 2y
Bookish_AF Yay I‘m glad you liked it!! I picked it as a surprise because we actually read it for the last round of #LMPBC and thought you may enjoy it as well 😀 2y
Bookish_AF I made several comments throughout about the women being disregarded because of the time period so obviously it was “witchcraft” or superstition. But who knows what was actually real! 2y

I went to take a photo of this novel for my review (in under the wire for #scarathlon2020) and caught sight of this gorgeous sunset. The novel is also quite good: a haunted-house story in the Gothic tradition that addresses the challenges of relationships between women in a patriarchal society. Purcell does an excellent job portraying the main characters' feelings of being trapped.

About 6 hours of reading so another 76 pts for #TeamHarkness.

This is the perfect ghost story to keep you up at night. A Victorian Gothic novel told in flashbacks from an insane asylum. It jumps back and forth from the 19th to the 17th century; weaving a dark, sinister tale that makes your blood run cold, keeping you gripped in suspense right up to the horrific ending!
