After his mother's death, a boy goes to live with his aunt, a mathematician, in her haunted English house where he meets the ghosts of his ancestors and learns about his family's curse. The mathematician is presented in a very positive light as compared to the stereotype mathematician that we have seen in so many other works of mathematical fiction. However, math is really not the main focus of the book. (The author is the daughter of poet Conrad Aiken.)
