From the writer who brought you Wilton's Christmas Carol, A Sunday Times Best Christmas Show of 2019 and the much-loved The Box of Delights.

1918.


A nurse, recently back from the front, is haunted by her wartime experience.


But when she finds herself at a séance, recalling memories of a lonely childhood Christmas on the Northumbrian moors, she also unearths a dark secret that refuses to remain in the shadows…
