When caregiver Julianna Margate takes a job looking after the aging widow of the county’s most prominent businessman, she never expects to come face to face with a creature so ancient, its long-forgotten origins are recorded in the Bible.
But the longer she stays at Harrow House, the more Julianna realizes something is not quite right. Tension seethes between Lavinia Harrow and her manservant and there’s something more than just bricks and mortar comprising the house. When Julianna comes face-to-face with the surprising truth behind the demise of Lavinia’s husband, Randall, and the connection between the family’s fortune and the presence in the mine, she must act fast to save her charge’s life and her own.
