Abstract:

Constance Langton grows up in a household marked by death, her father distant, her mother in perpetual mourning for Constance's sister, the child she lost. Desperate to coax her mother back to health, Constance takes her to a séance: perhaps she will find comfort from beyond the grave. But the meeting has tragic consequences. Constance is left alone, her only legacy a bequest in two parts that will blight her life: Wraxford Hall and a mystery. And she must descend into the darkness at the heart of the mystery to find the truth.
