When Cora is contacted by the ghost of a young girl, she goes to great lengths to solve the largest mystery her town has ever known.
Antiques, memories, mystery, and a creepy carnival collide when twelve-year-old Cora Wren inherits the family business—not Hollowfield Olde Factory Antiques where she works alongside her father and brother, but her family’s other business: seeing the memories and the past inside the antiques.
Cora can be transported to the memories associated with items she touches, and she soon is contacted by the spirit of Adelaide Crestfall—a young girl who disappeared from the quaint town of Hollowfield, Pennsylvania in the late 1930s. Adelaide strategically places objects in Cora’s way, transporting Cora to a haunted Crestfall Manor and to a traveling carnival where Adelaide’s disappearance or something worse may have occurred.
As the mystery surrounding Adelaide intensifies, Cora tries to balance her other struggles: repairing her shaky friendship with Lee, fending off the snotty Ambre Green, and coming to terms with the largest mystery she’s ever had to contend with—the disappearance of her own mother years ago.
