    Something is not right in Emily"s new house in the historic London neighborhood of Hound Hill. And something is not quite right with Emily. Encountering hints to her home"s haunted past, she begins to experience distressing symptoms: a headache, a fever, extreme thirst, hallucinations, and, then, a doorway to an earlier period of great distress. Readers will be swept away in this riveting and suspenseful tale that vividly reveals the great suffering of the Black Death, a disease that killed almost a quarter of the population of London.
