Plot bullets

A man and his family move to an inherited house.
A house with a rumored, haunted room, bricked up for years.
A departing uncle tells the three family children of their faults: one is selfish, one is prideful and the other too timid/cowardly.
The children\\\'s personal faults become foremost as the story unveils.
There are no ghosts or spooks, but the haunted room does have its evil.
Not only houses, but hearts also, can have haunted rooms.


The plot is good, but not unique.
Contains a high degree of religious philosophy. The author was a missionary
in her later years.
