Eleanor Druse has always been interested in the paranormal, but her fascination intensifies after she has a near-death experience at Kingdom Hospital while visiting a childhood friend who has just attempted suicide. Eleanor is treated for a mysterious condition at Boston General Hospital in Massachusetts, where she falls under the care of her nemesis, a surgeon named Stegman, who doesn't believe in Eleanor's psychic gifts.
Eleanor escapes the clutches of Stegman and returns home to Lewiston, Maine, where she hears of more strange occurrences at nearby Kingdom Hospital. She feels compelled to investigate and enlists her reluctant son Bobby, an orderly there, to aid her. Eleanor discovers that the hospital rests on the site of a textile mill that burned to the ground after the Civil War, killing many workers, including child laborers. She becomes convinced that the spirit of one girl, Mary Jensen, is trapped in the hospital, and that the apparition seeks resolution for her grisly death. She also senses other evil presences in the ancient hallways, including the spirit of a physician whose past may be intimately bound up with the child's spirit and with Eleanor's childhood as well.
These carefully kept journals trace Eleanor's investigations into Kingdom Hospital, from the beginning of her covert work up until its stunning and terrifying conclusion. The journals are a fascinating work, providing insights into the very nature of the spirits that haunt the hereafter.
