In this sinister tale of a haunted house, Waters revisits the fertile setting of 1940's Britain. When Dr. Faraday is called to the magnificent mansion Hundreds Hall, where his mom was once a maid, he finds it no longer in the great splendor he recalls as a child. As he grows closer to the members of the household, stories of ghosts and the supernatural unfold. In this tale of a haunted house and broken lives, Waters provides a rich atmosphere and psychological complexity.
