Consumption stalks Elizabeth James. At least that’s what the doctors from Harley street, the best available in Britain if not the world, say it is. One drop of blood at a time. Her only hope is the clean air, good food, and care of her uncle, Dr Standfast. Life on Barnecourt farm, high on a down in Dartmoor, may be her last chance. A chance that strange, almost human, men threaten. Especially when they scratch at her window in the depths of the night. Strange animals, a dog that walks upright and understands English, stalk the brush. Almost as disturbing, a visitor, a young man, almost literally drops from the sky into her life.

This book is in the same universe as Cynthia the Invincible.
