When she secretly marries his son, Charles, the Squire's wrath explodes and the desperate couple flee to the remote family home at Carwell Grange. There are dark secrets in this house and Alice soons feels something more malevolent than the Squire stalking her - an evil presence the servants only discuss in terrifed whispers - and this horror is about to unleash all of its black fury on her! the squire's other son. Alice faces the loss of her child and possible loss of her husband amid the gloomy home she feels trapped in, surrounded by secrets and mysteries and wondering who she can really trust.
