The Skeleton Garden

by Cynthia Chow


Newlywed Pru Parke is happily settled in at Greenoak, the birthplace of her English mother. In this bucolic setting Pru is also working alongside her brother Simon, who only recently reunited with his American sister. Built-up tensions still simmer between them, as Pru can’t help but feel guilty for being raised by the parents who gave Simon up for adoption. Family ties and loyalty are at the core of Pru’s heart, and as a result she doesn’t hesitate to welcome her husband’s nephew Orlando, sent to visit due to the teenager’s Internet shenanigans.
