Abstract:

Lloyd Lewis is moving to yet another children's home, but this one is different. It seems to be cast in an unremitting, sunless winter. The staff and children are surly and aggressive and he soon discovers why: Sarson Hall is in the grip of a curse. There are poltergeists creating constant disruptions, and, in the cellar, a terrifying ghost. But Lloyd's survival has always depended on his fighting spirit and he sets about confronting the supernatural anarchy. With the help of his friend Rudi and the young gardener, Justin, an archaeological student who has dropped out from university, he links the chaos to a nearby ravaged stone circle. Justin introduces him to his professor, James Appleyard and, guided by James, he discovers the amazing cause of the disruption. The ghost also recognises Lloyd as an ally, and leads him to a resolution that dramatically removes the curse from Sarson Hall.
