What I Found at Hoole is the highly-anticipated seventh book in author Jeffrey E. Barlough's acclaimed Western Lights series of fantasy-mysteries. Its narrator is young Mr. Ingram Somervell, who has been called to the remote village of Hoole, in the uplands of Ayleshire, to inspect some property bequeathed to him by an uncle he had never met. Almost at once he finds himself plunged into mysteries that confound him. Why had Clement's Mill, a dilapidated old mill that did no milling, been left to him, and the bulk of his uncle's estate left to a stranger, Miss Petra Solsgrace, from the distant town of Kirklade? Why had his uncle ordered the old chapel on the fellside and its coffin-crypt sealed after the arrival of Miss Petra, his ward and heir? What was the ghostly yellow light that had been seen on Cowdrie Beacon? And what to make of the frightful dreams hinting at some unimaginable catastrophe that had been plaguing young Somervell since he came into Ayleshire? Dreams of a ride in a dark carriage upon some grisly errand, of imprisonment in a dismal cold dungeon, and an eerie whistle that rings in his ears and chills the blood in his veins to ice? Needless to say, what he finds at Hoole will change his world forever.
