The Strangers on Montagu StreetLarge Print - 2012
With her relationship with Jack as shaky as the foundation of her family home, psychic realtor Melanie Middleton is juggling several problems. There are the usual upsets that come with restoring her Tradd Street home and her mother urging her to go public with her sixth sense. But this new problem is more urgent. Nola, Jack's estranged young daughter, has appeared on Melanie's doorstep -- damaged, lonely, and defiantly immune to her father's attempts to reconnect with her. As a special gift, Jack's mother has given Nola an antique dollhouse that depicts a precious tableau of a perfect Victorian family. At first, Nola is charmed with the present and Melanie is delighted and has high hopes that the girl will allow herself to be drawn into the family she's never known. But when night falls, some unnerving shadows are cast within the miniature dollhouse rooms. By the time Melanie senses malevolent presences, it's too late. A new family with its own secrets and personal demons has moved in and is drawing Nola into its inescapable darkness.
