Whisper Cottage

Whisper Cottage


How well do you know the woman next door?

When Stina and Jack move to an old rural cottage, they’re hoping for a fresh start. Their new home is run-down compared to their neighbour’s, but generous Mrs Barley quickly becomes a friend.

Until Stina sees a mysterious figure in the widow’s garden, and her happy new life begins to unravel. And when she hears strange noises in the night, she is forced to question if Mrs Barley is what she seems.

Why do the other villagers whisper about her? Why is she so eager to help the couple? And what is she hiding in her picture-perfect home?

Our Review

Whisper Cottage was is a book that keeps you guessing to the end. I read it in a few days but I am undecided how I feel about it.

Stina and Jack move to a rural cottage looking for a fresh start. Their neighbour Mrs Barley is friendly and willing to help the couple out in any way she can. 

Stina soon starts to question her motives though when she hears locals gossiping about Mrs Barley and she sees a mysterious figure in the widow's garden, and there is the way things keep happening to people who Mrs Barley seems to dislike.

Is she a witch or is she just a lonely and misunderstood old lady? What secrets is she hiding? 

Ultimately, in all honesty, the ending felt a bit rushed and disappointing. However, three quarters of the book was still engaging and I would still recommend reading Whisper Cottage
