Gina DeSantis, an interior designer from New York, and Christopher Berkley, owner of The Book Stops Here in the remote borough of Fallsdale, Pennsylvania, forge a strong partnership as they labor to give new life to the one-hundred-twenty-year-old Merrick mansion. When human remains and booty are discovered in the rubble of the old icehouse, the mystery of what became of the Merrick siblings takes on a sinister element. In parallel narrative, Hugh Edmund Merrick tells the story of his life as the scion of the Merrick family at the turn of the twentieth century. The disaffection of his father leads Hugh on a journey of self-discovery, commitment, sacrifice, and redemption. Along the way he experiences the horror of the Spanish Influenza in 1918 Philadelphia and befriends a host of fascinating characters: Arthur, a classical musician, Brother Ezekial, the black pastor of a shadow community of descendants of slaves, and the lovely mulatto girl, Grace, who profoundly changes the course of Hugh’s life and ultimately the fate of the Merrick House.
