How good is your memory?
Can you remember much about your childhood? The happy times maybe?
But what about dramatic events. I’m sure you can remember them, can’t you?
What about an event that was so dramatic it became traumatic?
How good is your memory then?
Mhairi had worked hard to build herself a normal, stable life, but there had always been a dark fear inside her. No matter how happy she was, it was always there.
It followed her about like a black bat, haunting her nights, hiding in a corner during her days, flapping out at odd moments, scaring the wits out of her.
It was as though she was standing outside a high-walled garden, barred from the secret of her past by the wrought-iron gate. She could see all the bushes and trees, the rhododendron and hydrangea. She could even smell the roses and the honeysuckle, but then the gate would swing shut and she was outside and it was dark.
Now her happy, settled life was being threatened by her own daughter and she knew she had to force through the darkness. She needed to remember what she had spent a lifetime forgetting.

A rather nice review on Amazon.com:
5.0 out of 5 stars Here at the Gate, September 21, 2014
This review is from: Here At The Gate (Kindle Edition)
What a hidden gem! This was a beautiful story, both in how it was written and the tale that unfolds. If you want fast-pace and constant action, this book is not for you. If you want to thoroughly enjoy every word and scene, then read on as Mhairi confronts her fears. This is a wonderful book about human emotions and triumphs. You will laugh. You will cry. But most certainly, you will enjoy Ms. Campbell’s story.
