Caroline Maxwell has felt a presence in her parent's ancient home, Stonecroft Manor, for almost as long as she can remember.
As a child she encountered another young girl, dressed in strange clothing, roaming the grounds.
Her parents dismissed this vision as childhood nonsense but after seeing the young girl again, Charlotte knew that wasn't the case.
She decided to do research on Stonecroft, and finds out that a girl lived there who shared her initials: Charlotte Marlowe.
But if this young girl is a ghost, why is she still haunting Stonecroft?
And how did she die?
As Caroline grows up, she sees Charlotte less frequently.
But then, as she starts getting ready to leave home and marry her fiancée, Robin, Charlotte begins to appear once again.
And it seems there might be some sinister parallels between Charlotte's life and Carolines.
What does Charlotte want?
Could she be influencing the present day?
Caroline must solve the mystery before it is too late...
