Description and OverviewWhen freelance writer Kate Murray’s Great Aunt bequeaths her a cottage in remote south Kerry, she is overcome with the peace and beauty of the little stone house. Set high up a hillside overlooking the ocean, even David, her architect husband, falls in love with it.
Determined that they should swap city for country, Dubliner Kate decides to try living her dream.
Curiosity draws her to the ancient circle of standing stones at the end of the lane – stones that her elderly neighbour is strangely yet fiercely determined to keep everyone well away from.
Little realising the grave danger she faces, Kate visits the stones at sunset and her life is set on a terrifying course that will bring her face to face with an ancient evil.
As her dream of the country life rapidly turns into a nightmare, events at the cottage become more and more sinister.
Why is the old lady so determined to keep people away?
What does the Parish priest know that he isn’t telling her?
Will Kate discover the secret to her personal haunting before it’s too late?
Set in the ancient and atmospheric surrounds of rural Ireland in the winter time, this paranormal thriller will leave you reluctant to turn out the lights.
