For years, Heather Tradescant had dreamed of the journey she and her father would take to England, a pilgrimage to the great gardens of history. Now that her father is dead, Heather is determined to fulfill his dreams. Unfortunately, her request to see the fabled 17th-century garden of Troytan House is denied by the owner. Though unwelcome, she braves the walls of briars and reaches the Victorian manor house beyond. She senses a strange mission of evil lurking, tainting the manor's peaceful beauty. Only then does Heather begin to wonder whether it is only stories of long-vanished witchcraft that haunt Troytan House or whether there is some more modern horror, hearer at hand, and far, far more dangerous.
Continuing in the classic tradition she established with such acclaimed novels of suspense as Stitches in Time, Vanish with the Rose, and House of Stone, New York Times best-selling author Barbara Michaels has penned a chilling tale that will keep you reading until the last page.

Why the abridged?
Yes, I would not have bought it had I known it was abridged, I thought it was going to be a short story.
None, I disliked all of them , it's a lame romance story. It's not for knowledge seeking, it's just fun. Hated the son, what a rude, self centered child.
She is great, she manages to make any story good.
