The Blythewood Curse
In 1890, Amelia and her brother William are informed that their estranged father has died, and they have inherited his home in England’s North York Moors. William escorts Amelia and her son Rowland from London to the house, only to find many unanswered questions. Why had their father left London without telling them? How had he come into possession of the house? Why were several of the rooms left untouched by not only their father, but the previous owner? Why does their father’s grave have a strange epitaph? What are the strange lights in the forest at night? Who is willing to tell them what really happened to their father? Despite these curiosities, Amelia enrolls Rowland in the local primary and they meet the headmaster Giles Arden, Rowland’s teacher Beth Cagar, and her daughter Tess. Each befriends the family in their own way. Tess seems to have a magical way with animals, and Rowland wants the same power. Beth says she can help him, but Rowland senses that something is not quite right. The townspeople know what happened ten years ago, but only a few of those, who did ritual within the stone circle, know about the curse and its devastating effects. It takes William’s discovery of a hidden diary, Amelia’s blossoming affection for Giles, and a curious Rowland, to discover the truth.
