The Victorian era bustled with scientific progress and discovery. The Victorian begins during this chaotic time. An inspired scientist has moved to a struggling mining town for better access to the materials that he will analyze for clues to what he hopes will be the nature of the human soul itself. As is so often the case, things don’t go as planned. His wife develops a mysterious pallor and later becomes deathly ill. Our scientist is pressed into hasty action well before his measurements and observations are certain. As the story unfolds, an elemental earth spirit waits in the shadows trying to silently control the increasingly out of control situation. One hundred years later, two enterprising sisters have purchased the home from a real estate website promising haunted houses for sale. They think the place will make a great haunted bed and breakfast. But first, they’ll have to sort out how haunted the place really is, and if it’s worth staying.

The Victorian Era was one that remains as the pinnacle of innovation as most literature and innovation were recorded around this time. This does not mean it was the only time that innovation and progress were made, but that it was when the more determinate recordings were made. We covered the era extensively in our posts throughout December, including our podcast noting that the Victorians made things like Christmas what they would mean to us today.
