The house – a forgotten homesteader’s place – looks like any other, ramshackle and worn by too many harsh seasons on the prairies. But something has drawn David to it, from the very first moment he saw it as a child. It is an obsession that will only grow as the years go by and he is compelled to search for its well-hidden secrets.
What he finds is an ever-deepening mystery, involving a man who disappeared thirty years ago and a possible fortune he left behind. His efforts to solve the riddle of the house will lead David to betray those he loves and forsake all that he has in the world for the promise of what he might discover.
For the house possesses a terrible power beyond his reckoning, and once he is trapped in its thrall he will never escape.
