An old villa. A great love. A dark secret.
Attorney Melody Stewart flees into her past in an attempt to escape her professional and private problems. She has inherited a house in idyllic Stockmill, and along with Dan Rashleigh, she follows the winding paths of their shared family history. The linchpin in all this is their ancestor, the courageous Lady Abigail Hampton, who was prepared to sacrifice everything for love. In order to rescue her sweetheart Oliver Rashleigh from execution, she fled with him to New York in 1843. And from there, farther west to Oregon, where they built a new existence for themselves. But their happiness soon came under threat. Unnoticed, a dangerous admirer was following close on Lady Abigail’s heels.
