Emily and John move to the quaint cottage of their dreams and learn why the previous owners left so quickly, as a tortured soul from the ancient mansion next door reaches out to Emily

Blackwell North Amer
Newlyweds John and Emily Wakelin can't believe their luck when they discover the quaint cottage of their dreams in Essex. Emily, a talented embroideress, and John, a rising accountant, settle into a peaceful life. But they get their first inkling of something amiss when Emily befriends the eccentric, autocratic Currans, who live in a centuries-old mansion next door. She can't shake the feeling that there is a strange presence lurking in the Curran house.
When the formidable Mrs. Witherley-Bashe, a self-righteous pillar of the community, discovers that the newest resident of Little Hocking is a talented artist, she insists that Emily accept a commission to create a wall hanging of the sixteenth-century martyr, Walter Tappett, for the local church. Emily, unable to say no, begins the task of constructing the embroidery. Battling local critics resistant to change, she gradually discovers a strange secret next door and finds herself racing against an unknown force to complete the embroidery before something horrible happens to herself or the people she loves.
