Superb gothic storytelling takes readers on a terrifying journey into the mythic past, as a present-day family finds itself the subject of an unrelenting evil going back centuries It was a tragic accident. That's what his family told Joe Nightingale, but the boy is tormented by sinister visions of his mother's death. Seven months after the fatal car crash, the Nightingales learn they have inherited an old house from a distant relative, the reclusive Muriel Sutton. Hoping to escape the shadows of the past, they decide to spend the summer at Daecher's Mill—but darker shadows await them. Who are the guests that have been brought here over the years? Why did the late Muriel Sutton murder her little sister, Alice? Something is moving in the attic. It looks and sounds like a little girl, but its eyes are old and its voice runs like water. It is a weaver of shadows. A creature of Absence.
