IBNA- The suspense novel ‘The Broken Girls’ by the award-winning Canadian author Simone St. James has been translated into Persian and released.

According to IBNA correspondent, the book has been translated into Persian by Bahareh Sharifi and released by Sang (Stone) Publishing in 416 pages.    

 

The synopsis of ‘The Broken Girls’ reads: “Vermont, 1950. There's a place for the girls whom no one wants-the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It's called Idlewild Hall. And in the small town where it's located, there are rumors that the boarding school is haunted. Four roommates bond over their whispered fears, their budding friendship blossoming--until one of them mysteriously disappears. . . .

 

Vermont, 2014. As much as she's tried, journalist Fiona Sheridan cannot stop revisiting the events surrounding her older sister's death. Twenty years ago, her body was found lying in the overgrown fields near the ruins of Idlewild Hall. And though her sister's boyfriend was tried and convicted of murder, Fiona can't shake the suspicion that something was never right about the case.

 

When Fiona discovers that Idlewild Hall is being restored by an anonymous benefactor, she decides to write a story about it. But a shocking discovery during the renovations will link the loss of her sister to secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the past--and a voice that won't be silenced. . . .

 

Simone St. James is the award-winning author of ‘The Haunting of Maddy Clare’, which won two RITA awards from Romance Writers of America and an Arthur Ellis Award from Crime Writers of Canada.
