From the very first moment she sees it, Tabitha knows there is something unusual about her new home. Used to moving house and school, Tabitha is quite willing to start a new life but, from the beginning, she is mystified by some of what she sees hears and smells. There's turmoil in Tabitha’s own life; now there seems to be confusion in the life of the home she lives in. Are the two related? Full of the unexpected, this is a classic ghost story with just the right amount of spookiness.
I've just moved into a creepy old manor house with my family. And it feels like the house is waiting for something. I can't explain all the things that are happening here. The maids I hear sobbing... The old ladies that stand in the hall. The cold breath of... Life? Death? I don't know. I can't tell Dad or Mum. But least I've got my little brother Ben to talk to.
This is a ghost story unlike any other...It will leave you chilled to the very last page.
