Summary
Summer, 1944. Bombed out by the blitz, teacher, Bethany Merston takes up a post as companion to elderly Alice Summer, the last remaining inhabitant of the dilapidated and crumbling Summerhayes estate. Now a shadow of its former glory, the whole place feels as unwelcoming as the family themselves. Struggling with the realities of war, Alice is plagued by anonymous letters and haunting visions of her old household. At first, Beth tries to convince her it's all in her mind but soon starts to unravel the mysteries surrounding the aristocratic family's past
