Twenty-five years have passed since eight-year old Carl Weber drowned in Gray's pond and now one memeber of the Adam's family has returned to Kimberton, Pennysylvania, to reside again in the old family mansion. It is time for Mark Adams to revisit his past, and for his wife, Donna and daughter, Kim to become acquainted with their neighbors- a rather odd old couple who own the farm next door.

Each day, however, brings strange occurences-increasing paranormal activity, till it becomes agonizingly clear that ghosts of the past are trying to make their presence known. But is it the dead the Adam's need to fear or someone with a more sinister appetite for murder?

The following plot disclosure gives nothing away, as it happens in the prologue–Carl Weber, a poor boy dropped off across town at the palatial estate of a wealthy playmate, drowns in a private pond adjacent to the property.

The Kenyon Review

Unlike the men in the book, who are sheltered by Westish from the “real world” (pardon the phrase, but what else to call it?), Pella comes to Westish to recover from the bruises of that world.
