Another newcomer is Helen Jenkins, a cook, to whom Jason is instantly attracted. Together they discover what dangers really lurk behind those ivy-clad walls. How the terrible post-war past bleeds into the present when the tormented soul of the young woman haunting them will stop at nothing to have her story told.
