Ellie and Henry are young, rich, and engaged. When Ellie's eccentric Aunt Kate asks her to house-sit at her palatial estate in Burton, Virginia, Ellie is happy to oblige. She feels right at home there with the nearly invisible housekeepers and the plethora of pets, but conventional Henry finds Aunt Kate and her lifestyle a little hard to take. After he leaves, Ellie realizes that there are disturbing secrets about the local aristocracy buried in a dusty old book she has carried into the mansion, and her sudden interest in the past is attracting a slew of unwelcome guests--some of them living ... and some, perhaps, not. But there are no such things as ghosts, are there? And the terrible vengeance that Ellie and her friends seem to have aroused--now aimed at them--surely cannot be ... Satanic.

I don't understand how anybody can recommend this book. I tried reading it - it is so badly written that any hi school essay would be better. The characters are totally unbelievable - make no sense, The action is absurd. I could not continue reading it. But I find that many American authors who are praised are really bad writers. I have yet to read a British Published author who is as bad. I guess Americans just have way lower standards.
I was INCAPABLE of reading more than 30 pages - even forcing myself.
