Anna s family expected that Granny s funeral would be the last time they would see her. But this is one old lady who won t take death lying down.
When Granny dies, everyone in the family heaves a sigh of relief. She was a difficult old woman and not easy to live with. So when the unmistakably transparent form of Granny appears at the tea table, both adults and children are alarmed. Why is Granny s spirit so restless? It appears the young apprentice angel deputed to guide her spirit to heaven hasn t been doing the job. Whether Granny goes upstairs or down below now hangs in the balance and Granny s bad temper doesn t help. The ensuing tussle between the devilish form of Mr Brimstone and his bumbling angelic counterpart for the old lady s soul leaves Granny in limbo and the family in crisis. When Granny s ghost disappears, it s left to young Anna, with a few angelic companions, to seek her at the very doors of Hellmouth.
