Claire Mumford's life is going great. Her book sales are taking off, her daughter Maggie is flourishing at school. Even her husband Jesse is happy. His new veterinary clinic was built on a idyllic plot of land outside Georgetown, Delaware. But there is a spirit on the land. One who walks the road searching for her lost love. The one who left her waiting at the altar. And she is angry. Very angry.
Meet Naimh Buckey. An Irish immigrant in service as a scullery maid who only wants to better herself by learning to read and someday becoming a house cook. When the handsome son of the estate begins to woo her, should she risk her family's safety for love?
Can Claire rid the land of the spirit of Naimh before she hurts Jesse...or worse?
