Since the accident that disfigured him, Morgan Fletcher has lived alone. He has a housekeeper and occasional servants, but mostly he has the big house to himself. Since he can't bear the way people looks at his face, this is how Morgan likes it.

Until, one day, a baby shows up on the doorstep. For some reason, Morgan and his housekeeper (Engel) keep the child. And then another kid shows up. And another.

One day Morgan sees a child appear out of thin air.

Because of the children, Morgan and Engel befriend Dr. Crane.

And then things get creepier and creepier..

The book jacket describes this short novel as an inversion of the "children go someplace magical and save it" story, and it sort of is.. but it is also a very disturbing horror story for adults.

If that's what you like, check this book out because it is really good.
