Summary (From the publisher):

Things move slowly in the village of Illthwaite, but that's about to change with the arrival of two strangers intent on dragging up bits of the past the locals would rather keep buried. Sam Flood is a young Australian mathermatician whose granmother was dispatched from Illthwaite four decades ago, courtesy of the Child Migrant scheme. Miguel Madero, a dropout from a Spanish seminary, has come to the Stranger House in pursuit of an ancestor last seen setting sail with the Great Armada.

The antipathy between them is instant and mutual, but as they follow their seprate quests their paths become increasingly entangled, with clashes physical and metaphysical, and shocks natural and supernatural, as the tension mounts to an explosive climax.
