本書介紹

  14歲的姊姊Molly與10歲的弟弟Kip原本是住在愛爾蘭的孤兒,為了生計進入一座英格蘭的宅邸做僕役。當他們到達時,才發現整個莊園殘破不堪、搖搖欲墜,主人家庭神秘兮兮,入夜之後鬼影幢幢。此時一位陌生人來訪,揭開此處是被詛咒之地的真相,Molly和Kip該如何保住小命?他們有機會逃離莊園嗎?夜裡的鬼影又為何盤據不去?


  如電影般的緊湊情節與作者精心營造的詭譎氛圍加乘之下,絕對能讓你聚精會神地讀到最後一頁並且大呼過癮!

  This much-anticipated follow-up to Jonathan Auxier’s exceptional debut, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, is a Victorian ghost story with shades of Washington Irving and Henry James. More than just a spooky tale, it’s also a moral fable about human greed and the power of storytelling.

  The Night Gardener follows two abandoned Irish siblings who travel to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor house. But the house and its family are not quite what they seem. Soon the children are confronted by a mysterious spectre and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives. With Auxier’s exquisite command of language, The Night Gardener is a mesmerizing read and a classic in the making.
