1950 - At the crumbling Idlewild Hall school for unwanted girls, four room-mates begin to bond over dark secrets and whispered fears - until one of them mysteriously disappears...

2014 - Journalist Fiona Sheridan can't get over the murder of her sister twenty years ago, near the ruins of Idlewild. And when another body is found during renovations of the school, she begins to uncover horrors that were meant to remain hidden - and a voice that won't be silenced.

For fans of Lisa Jewell and S.K. Tremayne, The Broken Girls is a chilling story of murder, revenge, and secrets that refuse to stay buried...

I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! -- Deanna Raybourn, author of A Treacherous Curse Chilling, disturbing and gripping, this is a well-written, modern-day gothic tale about facing our darkest fears -- Tessa Harris, author of The Sixth Victim Simone St. James weaves a spellbinding tale of fervently held secrets, mysterious murders, and a boarding school for the unwanted. Told through deftly intertwined timelines, this gothic ghost story held me rapt until its dark, final twists. An addictive read not to be missed -- Kristina McMorris, author of The Edge of Lost Haunting and memorable, The Broken Girls is a mesmerizing blend of past and present; a sometimes heartbreaking and always compelling quest for the truth about secrets that shouldn't stay buried.

It held me hostage in a very modern ghost story until the early hours -- Fiona Barton, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Widow and The Child
