    It wasn’t just the bad breakup that turned Eleanor Mellett’s life upside down. It was the cancer. And all the demons that came with it. Luckily, Eleanor discovers Talbingo, a remote little town looking for a primary-school teacher. Unfortunately, Talbingo is a bit creepy. It’s not just the communion-wine-guzzling friar prone to mad rants. Or the unstable, overly sensitive kids, always going on about Miss Barker, who vanished. It’s living alone in a remote cabin, with no cell or Internet service, wondering why there are so many locks on the door and who is knocking on it late at night.

And what's become of the previous teacher, the saintly Miss Barker who has disappeared abruptly under mysterious circumstances? And what's with all those locks on her front door? And what is that bus doing idling outside her house late at night? When the local priest tries to exorcise Eleanor of her 'cancer demon', he seems to have unleashed a host of other demons set to torment her.
