Summary "1752, Midsummer. Following a desperate summons from her mother, Tabitha Hart departs London for her home village of Netherlea--only to discover that her mother has allegedly drowned. Determined to discover the truth about the Widow Hart's death, Tabitha consults her mother's almanack and uncovers a series of cryptic notes describing her terror of someone she names only as 'D'. Joining forces with mysterious young writer Nat Starling, Tabitha begins a race against time to unmask 'D' as more murders follow. But as the sun retreats and snow cuts off Netherlea from the outside world, Tabitha and Nat are forced to face the darkest hours of their lives. With the Almanack predicting the year will reach a 'violent, bloody end', can Tabitha survive to bring her mother's killer to justice? The Almanack is a richly told tale of spirit and superstition and contains fifty authentic riddles to puzzle the reader." -- Dust jacket.
