When Trina and her father move into Goldenrod, an abandoned Victorian mansion, Trina hopes she will finally have a place to call home and a chance to make friends at her new school. But school doesn t go as planned, and Goldenrod might be haunted.

Then Trina discovers Augustine, a tiny and very unusual porcelain doll that belonged to the little girl who lived at Goldenrod a century ago. With help from Augustine, Trina realizes Goldenrod is trying to tell her an important secret, one that may just change her life.
