       Additional Information  
      Not long after Mary Ranney pulls up at the entrance to the grounds of All Souls Cathedral and school, mysterious happenings begin to occur. In her attempt to make the school authorities change their minds about taking her ten-year-old son as a student, she barters with them, agreeing to refinish the floor in the pastor's study. It is then that Ranney discovers a strange-albeit revealing-message, left behind on one of the floorboards.

    The mysteries she encounters behind a secret room at the end of a tunnel are the workings of the paranormal, a confession from long ago yearning to be discovered. The question is-does the crypt reveal more than a one hundred-year-old corpse?

    Dorothy Deane's haunting tale offers a unique and accurate depiction of life in a farming community from the 1890s. Implementing exciting twists and turns, Deane brings a century-old ghost story to the present time.
