A gothic tale of a woman who finds herself embroiled in a sinister scheme that threatens to plunge her into the depths of madness. However, she meets a rather lugubrious ally, a ghost, willing to help her unearth the truth from the catacombs buried under a labyrinth of lies going back over a century.
Carrington Manor has its share of history and ghosts, which Hettie is quite familiar with through her late father’s business selling peculiar antiques said to be haunted. However, the job turns out to be more than she bargained for.
The owner is determined to level the house as quickly as possible, but it seems the house refuses to go down easily. Crews flee frightened by unexplained phenomena that grow more violent as demolition day approaches but she’s not afraid.
Hettie learns that the man who joins her in the parlor for tea every night has been dead for over a century. She knows that a house can have a life of its own and can keep secrets buried deep within its walls. She reaches beyond the grave to her father, the only man she knows who can help her unravel the mysteries of the house and the objects within it. The answers lead her to a grisly discovery that holds the key that can free the specter from his torment, but she must do it before her spirit is trapped within Carrington Manor.
