From the acclaimed author of The Weir, another haunting tale of lost souls

Rural Ireland, May 1822 ..

The defrocked Reverend Berkeley arrives at the crumbling former glory of Mount Prospect House to accompany a young woman to England

Seventeen-year-old Hannah is to be married off to a marquis in order to resolve the debts of her mother's estate

Compelled by the strange voices that haunt his beautiful young charge and a fascination with the psychic current that pervades the house, Berkeley proposes a séance

The consequences of which are catastrophic

The Veil weaves Ireland's troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time
