Why can no-one stay at the Dower House?

Amabel Grey, a charming and lovely widow, had not seen scientist Julian Forsham since she chose to marry another man. But it is their fate to meet again now at the eerie Dower House, a house whose previous tenants had tended to quit abruptly. Amabel Grey has accepted a large financial offer – or is it a challenge? – to anyone willing to stay in the Dower House for a full six months. A haunted house doesn’t deter Amabel – not until some very nasty things start to go bump in the night…
