In this second book in the chilling York Trilogy, Dan struggles to bring the truth behind the faces in the Water to the surface.
Back from York, England, and away from the ghosts and gypsies that haunted him there, Dan is prepared to spend a relaxing summer on his grandmother's farm. But he no sooner arrives than his peaceful mood turns into terror.
Again and again, he sees the face of a gypsy he met in York in the cellar spring water, and hears whispers of his name in the wind. Determined to confront the fears and faces that have followed him home, and restore his life to the way it was before York, Dan is led into the past, where he must examine the present and focus on the future yet again.
Dan's journey begins with Shadows on the Wall and concludes with Footprints at the Window.
