A supernatural story of love, ghosts, and madness as a young couple, newly engaged, become caretakers of a historic museum. When Nick Beron and Hannah Rampe decide to move from New York City to the tiny upstate town of Hibernia, they aren't exactly running away, but they need a change. Their careers have flatlined, the city is exhausting, and they've reached a relationship stalemate. Hannah takes a job as live-in director of the Wright Historic House, a museum dedicated to an obscure nineteenth-century philosopher, and she and Nick swiftly move into their new home. The town's remoteness, the speed with which Hannah is offered the job, and the lack of museum visitors barely a blip in their consideration. At first, life in this old, creaky house feels cozy—they speak in Masterpiece Theater accents and take bottles of wine to the swimming hole. But as summer turns to fall, Hannah begins to have trouble sleeping and she hears whispers in the night. One morning, Nick wakes up to find Hannah gone. In his frantic search for her, Nick will discover the hidden legacy of Wright House: a man driven wild with grief, and a spirit aching for home. Read by Graham Halstead, with Carol Monda, Richmond Hoxie, Michael Crouch, and an ensemble cast

"Graham Halstead is the featured narrator of this tale of ghosts, past and present, who haunt Nick Beron and Hannah Rampe, the newest caretakers of the Wright Historic House in Hibernia, New York. Halstead delivers this ghostly tale in a low tone that rises and falls with the characters' emotional stress. Little by little, the ghosts make their appearances, particularly to Hannah, who slowly loses touch with reality. In addition, Halstead captures Nick, who eventually finds himself also wrestling with reality and the ghosts that haunt him. While Halstead performs the bulk of the story, the rest of the cast read diary entries written in notebooks by past inhabitants, now ghosts, of Wright House. Insanity, loss, and sorrow are woven seamlessly into this haunting tale in which the present is a transitory thing. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
