About the Book

The Haunting of Hill House follows four seekers who arrive at the notoriously unfriendly Hill House. Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers — and soon it will choose one of them to make its own. Get instant access to the eBook and eAudiobook versions of The Haunting of Hill House.
