A candle-lit recounting of a Gothic tale of suspense and spine-tingling terror…
1880’s Victorian London. Orphan spinster Edwina “Weenie” Trout accepts a position as a lady’s companion on the remote island that houses Whisham Manor – known by the locals as ‘Desolation’. She finds herself to be the latest in a long line of ‘girls’ who have mysteriously disappeared while in service to the mysterious Whisham family.
Will she discover the family’s secrets?
Or will she simply vanish – like all the girls before her?
