From the Back Cover:

A tale of hellish terror to be read when the shadows gather . . .

At the end of the nineteenth century Charlotte Metcalf is a child of good fortune: a prosperous father, a loving mothe and a beloved brother all cocoon her from the fears of the outside world. But then her father dies and she is plunged into poverty; the workhouse becomes her miserable home.

Yet Charlotte escapes, determined to find her lost brother. Her search brings her to Barras Hall, home of unknown relations where fine clothes, good food and wealth seem to promise all she desires. But at night the horror begins - of sound and sense, and surpassing all earthy terror. Charlotte finds that daytime comfort comes at a price . . . and she must fulfil her terrible destiny.
