Molly and Kip, an orphaned sister and brother, seek employment at the Windsor House, but the house is falling down and the family that lives there are curiously losing their health and vigor even as they seem to gain the things they wish for. And this is only the start. Thugs threaten the master of the house. The branches of a sinister tree scratch the windows while its roots wiggle into the cellar and a ghostly gardener creeps through the halls. If Molly is to save her brother, the family and herself, she must figure out why all this is happening and stop the gardener.
This is a creepy ghost story with a plucky heroine who is likely to win your heart as she struggles through some surprising reversals. If you like dark fantasy and eerie stories, this might be right up your alley.
