Spiritualists sometimes refer to a region of existence where spirits roam free of material bodies as Summerland. On the shores of West Bay Lake, Wisconsin, there is a house where the living and the dead exist under the same roof. The new owners call it Summerwind.
The house has stood for nearly fifty years before Ginger sees it, and falls in love. Despite warnings that it is haunted, she moves her family into the old mansion, and begins a meticulous restoration. As time passes, Ginger becomes increasingly obsessed with the prospect of returning the house to its original glory…. While a supernatural presence drives her husband to the brink of homicidal madness.
Faced with the violent destruction of their family, Ginger and her children live in growing fear that the house will eventually consume them all.
