Fifteen-year-old Lia comes from a long line of courageous women, dating back to a Civil War survivor who single-handedly saved her Louisiana plantation house, Graymoss, from destruction. But Graymoss is haunted by a terrible evil.

With clues from a diary and Favorite Tales of Edgar Allan Poe, Lia, who doesn't feel as if she's inherited any family genes of courage, must figure out what--or who--the evil wants. When Lia's parents decide to move into Graymoss, Lia isn't sure how to convince them to change their minds. But it's up to her to chase away the horror lurking inside the old house. Can she find the courage to deal with a noisy ghost who wants vengeance?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh......okay I love Joan lowery nixons books but this one didn't live up to my standards. The book doesn't talk much about the ghosts or the haunting. The last 10-15 pages is where everything happens. Don't get me wrong those 10 or so page where great with a good plot twist but everything else is dull.
