Nora is a lonely fifteen year old who dreams of more adventure than life in suburban Maryland can offer. Fascinated by the supernatural, she begins exploring an allegedly haunted, abandoned house on the property where her father works. She soon finds herself tangled in the mysteries of the house as she uncovers its many secrets and meets a shy ghost called "Walter."

Including original documents with the author's notes, this book is based on real events and reveals how a girl, a house, and its ghost will become intertwined forever.

"Ms. Cotter's evocative writing deliciously transported me…A wonderfully engaging book which also sheds light on the complex impulses that make the paranormal so irresistible. Ghosts speak to us in so many ways. The author is a master listener."
–Ursula Bielski, author of the Chicago Haunts series

"Let This House take you back to a time when the barrier between the real and the imagined was mercurial, and all things seemed possible. Who knows, you just may discover something of yourself lurking in these pages."
–Michael Kleen, author of Haunting Illinois: A Tourist’s Guide to the Weird and Wild Places of the Prairie State
