“Young Iris Villiers has grown up in an isolated country house, best friends with her older brother, Harvey, and listening to ghostly tales told by the family's gardener. When tragedy strikes, the siblings' childhood game of Isis and Osiris takes on a deadly-serious new meaning, but things don't turn out quite as planned. The book is gorgeously illustrated with black-and-white drawings.”
