Flame-haired Charity Delafield has grown up in a vast, isolated house - most of which she is forbidden to explore - by her strict, cold father. With only her kindly nurse, Rose, and her cat Mr Tompkins for company, she knows very little of the outside world - or of her own family's shadowy past. What she does know is that she is NEVER to go outside unsupervised. And she is NEVER to over-excite herself, because of the mysterious 'condition' that she has been told she suffers from. But Charity has a secret of her own. All her life, she has had the same strange dream - a dream of a dark corridor, hidden somewhere in the house. Then, one day, Charity stumbles across the corridor. It leads to a door . . . and suddenly she realises things are not quite what they seem.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Beck's book is exquisitely produced, and a delight to hold; this would make a perfect present for a dreamy child of 9+ . . . Proves, triumphantly, that there are better books out there than the endless Twilight rip-offs pumped out for young girls. We just have to find what is beautiful and true" -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
"This has all the ingredients of an enthralling adventure - a lonely child, a missing parent, a series of clues and a surprisingly satisfying twist of an ending" * Daily Mail *
"A perfect fantasy novel for older children . . . In all senses, a magical tale" -- A N Wilson * Readers Digest *
