"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 inhabitants are not quite what they seem. Soon, the children are confronted by a mysterious stranger--and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives. A mesmerizing read and a testament to the magical power of storytelling, "The Night Gardener" is a spine-chilling fable in the tradition of Washington Irving and Edgar Allan Poe.
