I hope this story will make you laugh and cry - and seriously give you the creeps! The story is about Annie and her older brother, who go to work in the eerie Hexer Hall. Soon we find that Annie can travel in time - and she ends up in the frightening medieval leper hospital that was once on the site of the hall. Why does Lady Hexer want to get her hands on the medieval doctor's book of cures? How can Annie get the book when it's guarded by the things she fears the most? And what will Annie do when she realises the book is very, very dangerous...
