Darkness once twisted Adelaide Dinsmore’s mind, but she thought she had grown out of that.

As her mind starts to crumble, she is offered a new job, this time as a governess for Gentleman Bennett’s granddaughter back east.

Bennett Hall is a sprawling manor of winding tunnels and manicured lawns, and the fence is really just for show. The little girl, Theodora, is a delight, albeit quiet, and the Bennetts are kind enough, especially the dashing young Joseph. So what if one of the servants sends chills down her spine every time he looks at her? Surely that, and the noises in the night, are figments of her imagination. She won’t allow the past in Hedlund to tarnish her future at Bennett Hall.

Then, Theodora begins to speak of a Villain who haunts secret passages in the manor, and Adelaide stumbles upon a sealed off wing where ghosts whisper from the shadows. Twisted inventions fill the basement and the villagers are wary of the Bennett family.

The longer she stays at Bennett Hall, the less likely her chance for escape, but she cannot leave Theodora or Joseph. The darkness in her mind might be the only thing to save them.

The past won’t let Adelaide go.

Adelaide is a magnet for trouble. She triumphed over the troubles of her childhood only to have tragedy strike again when one of her students dies under suspicious circumstances. Adelaide had my sympathy from the very first page. It is clear she cares for her students and had nothing to do with the death of the young girl, yet the town is determined to blame her. Adelaide isn’t even given a chance to defend herself and is sure her prospects as a teacher are ruined. Miraculously, a position as a governess falls into her lap, but is it too good to be true?

Adelaide is a strong young woman. With the love and support of her parents, she’s overcome the troubles of her past to become an accomplished teacher. When she accepts the position with the Bennett family, Adelaide is once again looking toward the future. However, I immediately suspected that all was not well at Bennett Hall. Theodora is a sweet girl, but everyone else behaves so strangely. Parts of the house and property are sealed off or forbidden, and strange noises haunt the night. The darkness surrounding Bennett Hall is suffocating. I wouldn’t have spent more than one night in such a creepy place, but Adelaide is determined to protect Theodora even if it means putting herself at risk. Joseph is a ray of sunshine at Bennett Hall. His kindness and warmth toward Adelaide immediately won me over. It was a pleasure to watch them fall in love and face the evil in Bennett Hall together.

Secrets of Bennett Hall is a very good read. The eerie atmosphere gave me goosebumps, and as the truth of Bennett Hall’s past is gradually revealed, I was truly horrified. I was on the edge of my seat wondering how it all end, and I must say the conclusion was unexpected. While this book is part to in the Return to Amston series, it stands alone extremely well. I highly recommend Secrets of Bennett Hall to anyone looking for a spine-chilling Gothic tale with a touch of romance.
