Lily Evans lives in poverty with a roommate she despises and no hope for the future until a letter arrives in the mail that could change her life.
A man named Michael Carlton has offered Lily the position of housekeeper inside his mansion situated at the outer edge of the famous Pinelands in New Jersey.
After the interview, Lily’s instincts sound the alarm bells about the strange house and its owner. She doesn’t listen to her gut and promptly moves into the gardener’s cottage behind the mansion desperate for a new lease on life.
When Lily spots movement inside the second-floor window of the mansion, she quickly discovers the reclusive owner is hiding a horrifying secret and if Lily isn’t careful, she might become another victim of Carlton House.
