In 1689 Kent, Richard Hadlow desires a happy family and a peaceful home. He’s built what seems to be the perfect house, but even the most perfectly-laid plans can go tragically wrong.

England’s turmoil with a pretender vying for the throne doesn’t concern Richard; he only cares about finding the perfect wife. But something at Hadlow House has different intentions, and it may lead to the destruction of everything he holds dear.

Despite being brand new, strange whispers and unexplained noises haunt Hadlow House. Uncertainty looms as to whether Richard’s new wife, Rebecca, is imagining things or if a dark secret from the past will bring his worst nightmare to life.
