Now, American writer Carrie McClelland hopes to base her next bestselling novel on that story of her ancestors in the dim, dark past . Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she starts to write. But as Carrie's mind slips back in time, she learns of the ultimate betrayalthat happened all those years ago, making her the only living person who knows the truth--and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her.
