About the Book: Maisie Holt. This is her book.

It’s an old house, one her family plans to stay in for only a short while; but for Hannah Price, secrets soon come creeping out of every corner of Cowleigh Lodge.

First there’s the old and dusty book of children’s fairy tales that belonged to a young girl named Maisie. Hannah learns that the girl died mysteriously at age eleven in this very house nearly 140 years ago.

Then, when Hannah draws a portrait of Maisie, things begin to fall apart. The house seems to be reverting to its nineteenth-century form, and Hannah’s not sure whether it or Maisie herself is sending her messages. Hannah must solve the mystery of Maisie’s death, because if she doesn’t help her, Maisie may never leave Hannah alone. . . .

Rebecca Wade has created a haunting story that will capture readers’ imaginations until the very last page.
