The Hamilton family move into a large country house on the Yorkshire Moors to supervise its restoration from a dilapidated B&B to the original Victorian grandeur. When Meg Hamilton, wife, mother and renovation expert first loses her London team after an accident, then a local Yorkshire team too superstitious to continue, she’s forced to carry on alone. The discovery of a secret attic room, a Rosicrucian mosaic, a bricked up root cellar and many other unexplainable events gradually convince Meg, her husband Alec and children Penny and Harper, that they’re not only restoring the house, but also its original Victorian owners who died 150 years ago. But before they can escape, the house - and its former occupants - force them to spend one last, terrifying night under its roof.
Based on the film of the same name directed by Nick Willing from his original screenplay, releasing on DVD in the United States and elsewhere Spring 2015./
The film stars Olivia Williams as Meg Hamilton, Matthew Modine as Alec Hamilton, Antonia Clarke as Penny and Adam Thomas Wright as Harper.

Chilling, tense thriller that keeps you guessing! I couldn’t put this book down, it was a real page-turner! The tension builds with every page and the ending had the perfect twist. I have heard the story compared to The Shining, and I can definitely see the parallels. The characters are well developed, and the house takes on a personality of its own. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good thriller and can’t wait to see the film!
I really enjoyed this book. Very interesting characters with a creepy but intriguing plot. I loved the twist ending!
Great read! Echoes of The Shining but with a twist - both chilling and fascinating.
