Beset by a series of strange, erotic dreams, Maggie Kildare, a young writer living in New York, is eager to discover their meaning. When she finds herself the sole beneficiary in an unknown woman's will, leaving her a large estate in Cornwall, England, she feels that perhaps she has been given a key to unlock the dreams' mysteries. This feeling is enhanced when she is introduced to Ethan Jones, a young Englishman who more than just resembles the man in her dreams. Their mutual attraction is hampered by the arrival of Maggie's jealous boyfriend, Mark Devane-and by Celia Collins, the scheming ex-companion of Maggie's benefactress, Penelope Burroughs. A diary and a letter, left by Penelope, only help to confuse Maggie even more. An attempt on her life, and a supposed betrayal by the man she is falling in love with, send Maggie into a tailspin. Researching the history of Park Manor, the estate she now owns, she discovers that her great-great-grandfather was murdered on the day he was to be married-and that the spirits of both he and his bride-to-be are urging her to avenge them, and set them free.
