Set in the quiet English countryside, the story follows the adventures of the Mynn family as they unravel a perplexing mystery that surrounds their new home.

From the very beginning, the author expertly sets the scene and establishes a sense of intrigue. The Mynns, a family of four, move into a quaint old house that holds secrets just waiting to be discovered. The opening chapters paint a vivid picture of the surroundings, immersing the reader in the beauty and idyllic nature of the countryside.
