It’s World War One. In a beautiful mansion on a hill, the ghosts of past ages and present nightmares weave coils around a nurse and a soldier. February 1915, the Great War is gathering momentum and Haigh Hall, home of the Earl of Balcarres, has been loaned as an auxiliary hospital. Locals know that the Hall and woods are haunted. Alice Martin returns to her home town to take up her new post as Matron after the sudden and mysterious death of her predecessor. Soldiers with terrible injuries have been sent to recover in the Hall that is surrounded by ancient woodland and wide landscapes. But each soldier brings with him phantoms from the war. Alice finds that one officer draws her attention whilst conflicts are brewing between the Hall staff, leading to the greatest danger for one of them.
The atmosphere is charged, and a fearful ghostly presence stalks the passageways of the Hall which stands on the site of much older dwellings. Alice must negotiate on all fronts to ensure the hospital runs well and to do this she enlists the help of her friend, Sophia, a clairvoyant and medium.
