A GIRL EASILY carried off by the wind.An elderly widow whose husband died under strange circumstances.An isolated dwelling that breeds fear.Miranda has no recollection of where she came from—only that years ago, a gust of wind deposited her outside Bourne Manor. The Manor’s sole inhabitant, Wysteria Barrows, took Miranda in and promptly outfitted her with special boots—boots weighted with steel bars to keep her anchored to the ground.
