Mountains, travel, adventure Amelia Hammer wants it all. Instead, her globe-trotting parents have dumped her in tiny, boring Dunstone, Ontario, in the middle of winter with her grandmother and her geeky cousin Simon. Simon isn't having much fun either, saddled with a sulky stranger in black leather and with neon hair.And he has to be nice to her.…
Letter by letter, scratched by an invisible hand, the warning formed across the back of the piano before Wib’s eyes.
People in Amstey say the old Morphy house is haunted, “has been for years. Everybody knows that.” Wib, who once lived there, knows only one thing. The house is not safe. There are places in it he was told not to go: like the room of whispers in the cellar.
But the rest is questions. Who are the three mysterious “sisters” who live there now? Why does the telescope in the cupola show places impossibly far away and out of time? And the black dog that prowls the house at night, who is it hunting?
Top of the list, who and what is Henry? An imaginary childhood friend, a ghost, or something stranger?
None of that can keep Wib away from the old Morphy house. He and Henry need each other. Henry to get free of what has him trapped. And Wib to find something hidden in the house: something stolen that he must get back, or nothing will ever be right for him again.
