Abstract:

The year of 1816 felt extraordinary, and all because of a strange sort of star in the sky.... Lake Geneva, Switzerland. Early one summer's morning, a servant boy named Felix delivers an invitation. Tonight, at the mysterious Ville Diodati, there will be ghost stories that promies to 'freeze the blood'. As darkness falls, the guests arrive. The storytelling begins. Then comes an unexpected knock at the door. Felix discovers a girl on the doorstep. She's travelled a long way to tell her tale, and now he must listen. But be warned: hers is no ordinary ghost story. Sometimes the truth is far more terrifying.
