AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Harumi starts poking around in the back of the old Japanese antique shop, she has no idea where her curiosity will lead her. Will her reluctant heroism end in success, or will it lead to her own terrifying demise? Or is her mission completely different from what she first thought it was? Witches, hags, talking bears, mysterious inconsolable children, a dream-collecting baku and a stone jizo who weeps tears of healing - they each have a role to play in this thrilling Japanese ghost story, set on the banks of the dreaded River Sai.' - back cover
