Publisher's Summary

The old Harris house has been vacant for years.

A summer vacation in Milton, Maine, would be the best thing for Tim Harris, his wife, Polly, and their young son, Brian. Restoring Tim's childhood home to its original splendor would help Polly restore her own life after a breakdown that left her fragile and afraid. But for Polly, it's the beginning of new nightmare....

This summer it's coming to life.

Human bones are discovered in a nearby construction site. Brian nearly drowns while playing with a mysterious new playmate. Polly hears whispers no one else can hear. She sees a young girl no one else can see. And Polly's been warned. Something else lives in the Harris house. It's long dead but not forgotten. And it's not forgiving.

In the dark at the top of the stairs, it's waiting, in the white room.

Don't get the book on Audible!

This book is NOT read by a real person, but rather a computer generated jumble of words. It's not listenable.

Tears is always gathering around Polly's eye. Ugh.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no because Polly is just too damn annoying. Lots of time I wanted to punch her throat.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

no comment

What didn’t you like about Judy Pancoast’s performance?

She sounds like a robot.

Could you see The White Room being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

God NO!

Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of whinny grown up cry babies then go ahead and purchase this book. Might be just for you.
