When her mother suddenly vanishes without a trace, 19 year-old Ruthie and her little sister Fawn decide to do whatever it takes to find her. As they search their West Hall home for clues, Ruthie comes across a hidden diary that belonged to the previous owner of the house, Sara Shea, who was found dead under mysterious circumstances a few months after the death of her daughter in 1908.
Before she knows it, Ruthie finds herself at the center of a dark mystery that surrounds her mother, her house and their town — it seems like unexplained disappearances are not rare in West Hall, and it looks like Ruthie’s mother has been hiding some secrets that could explain why history repeats itself in this house. At the same time, a woman named Katherine arrives in town, looking for answers regarding the death of her husband, who secretly came to West Hall before dying in a car accident.
