Serena is seeking employment from the Hartreve family as a nanny. A job she doesn't really have alot of experience with but is willing to learn. Once she arrives at 36 Marguerite Avenue she is consumed with the mystery of what happened to 34 Marguerite ?
The story is told from two different time periods. One from Serena and her experience and one from the 1800's that tells what happened at 34 Marguerite. The more Serena gets to know the family, their seems to be oddities about them. Serena spends her day with Beth, who is four, one that does not like to be around other children. Beth's world is the house and the secrets that lives in the walls of it. Serena is still trying to run from her own childhood ghostly memories, will this be the place that will protect her ?
The secrets will be relived and told, the story is one that grabs you from the first page. A well written thriller. I didn't have trouble following the interweaving of two stories and they seemed to pick right up where the other left off. I could not help but to feel the story told from the 1800's was so dark and depressing. Its one you will not want to put down ! !
