As she struggles with her responsibilities Euphemia learns that White Orchards is built on the site of Hadwell House, a manor that suffered a terrible fate one Christmas Eve. As Christmas draws closer, people start behaving strangely, Euphemia is having nightmares and there is a palpable sense in the air that something is very wrong. Forming an unlikely alliance with Bertram’s step-sister Richenda, Euphemia tries to prevent disaster befalling the entire household and faces her most terrifying mystery as she sets herself against seeming supernatural forces.
