      Gerard Noone has spent his childhood in a succession of foster-families and children's homes. But just after his fourteenth birthday, he receives a summon from his dead mother's wealth family and goes to live with them in their beautiful Elizabethan house, Owlcote. Once there he discovers he is heir to an ancient curse which started with an ancient tragedy and has treatened every generation since. Gerard must try to make friends with his prickly cousin, Harrict, who was adopted by the Noones, and to hear the distant voices guiding them to the root of the curse. Battling against their rigid grandmother, they find the secret of the curse brought on the family by the alchemist Thomas Noone and his lonely, desperate daughter. Together, they free themselves and their family forever.
