Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Set in Victorian England, this book is a disturbing gothic story that will send shivers down your spine. Hardly married for a few months, Elsie has become a widow and is sent to live at her late husband's crumbling estate, The Bridge. Surrounded by resentful servants, Elsie has only her husband's awkward cousin for company. But the new home is no less hostile, as suddenly closed rooms open, and she encounters painted wooden figures that terrify the servants of The Bridge with their restless, following eyes.<br> <br> Ambientada en la Inglaterra victoriana, Compañías silenciosas es una perturbadora historia gótica que provoca escalofríos. Apenas con unos meses de casada, Elsie ha enviudado y es enviada a vivir su embarazo a la deteriorada casa de campo de su difunto esposo, The Bridge. Rodeada de resentidos sirvientes por extrañas muertes ocurridas en la casa, Elsie solo cuenta con la incómoda prima de su marido. Pero su nuevo hogar no es menos hostil, habitaciones cerradas repentinamente abiertas, un diario de doscientos años, con la terrible historia de la madre de una niña muda y de su poco natural concepción, y unas figuras de madera pintada profundamente inquietantes, llevarán a Elsie a situaciones extremas.
