When Joss Gram inherits Belheddon Hall in Essex from a mother she never knew, she and her husband, Luke, move in with their young son, Tom. All Joss knows of the house is that her two young brothers died there many years ago, but local townspeople whisper darkly of a curse on both the house and Joss's family. Something is definitely wrong at Belheddon Hall: the laughter of young boys echoes through its rooms; Tom goes into hysterics at the sight of a "tin man"; a ghostly voice whispers, "Katherine"; and white roses are found mysteriously strewn through the house. The birth of her second son only adds to Joss's worries that some force is determined to ruin her family. Her husband and her sister Lyn, who has come to help care for the baby, suspect otherwise. When the marks of violent pinches start appearing on both boys, it seems obvious to them that it is Joss who is truly responsible for the dangers at Belheddon Hall. Isolated by her fears and the suspicions of those she loves, Joss in on her own to solve the centuries-old curse of the house, and save her sons - and herself - before another generation falls victim.
