It is the second installment in the "Haunting" anthology following "The Haunting of Hill House." The story is set in 1980s England and revolves around Dani Clayton, an American who becomes an au pair for two orphaned children, Miles and Flora, at the remote and eerie Bly Manor.

The LGBT National Help Center wants to make sure you know that there is no ONE WAY of being. Each person has their own journey and has the right to find comfort and joy in the person they are, and how they express themselves. The journey of self discovery may be different for each person, and those with questions or concerns on their gender and/or sexual identity are welcome to talk with our peer support volunteers on our national hotlines and online one-to-one chat. A person's journey for acceptance both externally and internally is their own, and all are valid.
