Felicity Merriman has just bid farewell to her mother who has left on a trip. Soon after her mother leaves, a strange package arrived at the Merriman household. Inside are valuables of Lady Margaret, an ancestor of the Merrimans. Felicity finds inside a gorgeous silver hairbrush, a silver cup, and a baby rattle. Her father tells her the story of Lady Margaret ghost. How it was hard for her to have a child, how the child died and Lady Maragaret too soon after. Her last words were telling her husband she was sorry. People claimed to have seen her ghost, wandering through her home, finding a blanket to cover her baby.

The story sends chills up Felicity's back. She cannot shake the story out of her mind. One day when planning a meal for her father, she needed the keys to the cupboard. But they were gone, so she asked her friend, Elizabeth Cole to help find them. When they got back, the keys were back! They were very puzzled, then they discovered something horrific. The precious silver heirlooms-were gone!

Felicity has a line of suspects:

Mrs. Hewitt, the bossy old woman who helped Felicity with her cooking.

Dawson, a lad she met at the race grounds.

Anne, a very curly red-headed girl she met while watching the race.

Or perhaps...Lady Magaret's ghost?
