Sturstone Hall. It sits on the brow of a low hill in a gently undulating Essex landscape, blackened and broken, stubbornly refusing to give way to nature, nursing its secrets, and waiting for the one... But change is coming. Colchester hotelier Helen Whelan is restoring the gatehouse to the Hall, persuaded by her husband, Carl, that it will be a new home for them: a place to start a family and perhaps a different life. When she begins to experience strange, psychic visions, Helen decides to consult university parapsychologist, Doctor David Barton. The meeting sets in motion a sequence of events, which will change her life forever.
