Built on land taken from a dead wizard, The Pyncheon's seven-gabled mansion was the focus for two centuries' secrets and legends: legends of hauntings and undying curses, secrets of madness and missing fortunes.

But one rich, powerful, corrupt man--Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon--coveting the mansion's hidden secrets. And his plot to find them meant destroying all hope and happiness in The House of the Seven Gables.
