No. of pages 208

Great for age 11-18 years

A sinister and chilling ghost story from the author of THE FETCH OF MARDY WATT and CALYPSO DREAMING.

When Ossian reluctantly returns to Lychfont House - a country house with pretensions to match - with his artist father, he finds things bizarrely familiar and yet oddly different. Reacquainting himself with the Frazer family, he finds himself questioning the accuracy of certain childhood memories and wondering why the place seems to hold such power over him. One thing he IS sure of, however: the ghosts are still haunting him.

While Ossian puzzles over his existence, an ancient goddess searches for her lost love. She must call in the Scryer to track him down wherever he may be, for the wedding must go ahead. After all, she and Ossian were made for each other...

A timeslip ghost story that will chill readers to the bone.
