Eliot to Derrida : the poverty of interpretation by John Harwood( Book )

Constance Langton grows up in a household marked by death, her father distant, her mother in perpetual mourning for Constance's sister. Desperate to coax her mother back to health, Constance takes her to a séance hoping she will find comfort. But the meeting has tragic consequences. Constance is left alone, her only legacy a mysterious bequest that will blight her life. So begins this gripping, dark mystery set in late-Victorian England.

Now the Hall belongs to Constance, and she must descend into the darkness at the heart of the Wraxford mystery to find the truth--even at the cost of her life
