In the late spring of 1873, Isabelle gave birth to her son Oscar, he cried for three startling minutes, and then went silent. During the months that follow, Isabelle is drugged and lulled into an almost hallucinatory grief state, her world begins to feel as though it exists in a terrifying new reality separated from those around her.


When her grieving begins to make her husband, Henry, uncomfortable, he and his mother conspire to send Isabelle away to a “Summer Hotel” on Dagger Island where she can rest and heal. While they are adamant that the hotel is not an asylum and that Isabelle will be able to return eventually to her home, Isabelle understands in her heart that it is all a lie.


The Hotel is not what it seems, and the foreboding Dagger Island begins to feel more like a prison than a retreat. Isabelle hears relentless sounds coming from the attic above her room, and the ever-present cries of small children scream in her head almost constantly. Are they hallucinations, or are they connected to the small cemetery she found, filled with the graves of children?


She meets a fellow guest at the Hotel, a young, enigmatic, and deeply damaged priest, named Francis. Together they teeter on the edges of reality and try desperately to become free from the fates that their pasts have bound them to.




This is my first and most certainly not my last read by this author. Totally different from what I’ve been reading lately yet still a brilliant read. 

I’m finding it really hard to put into words a review to give this book the justice it deserves. I will say this is a really well written haunting story that held my attention all the way through. 

My heart broke for Isabella yet we know that what she went through at that time could easily have been true which makes it even sadder. 

I’m really looking forward to reading more from this author.

She’s a professional ballroom dancer by day, and a curly haired neurotic writer by night. She is an actor, a traveler, a photographer, a lover of horror, and a dog mom. Beautiful, Frightening and Silent was her debut novel.
