It is 2016 when Blaine Duncan arrives with his wife, Christina, at the sprawling Maine estate they recently purchased. Burkeshire Manor has changed significantly since the late 1600s when its first mistress, Penelope Burke, lived a lonely existence within the confines of an arranged marriage. But as Blaine begins work on restoring the old manor, he has no idea that tragedy is looming in his own future.
After Christina dies a short time later, Blaine spends the next few months attempting to move forward alone. But what he does not know is that in an effort to open the past to the present and provide Blaine and the manor’s first mistress with an opportunity to meet, a timekeeper has forgotten an important detail that has changed the timeline in a frightening way. Now he must reveal himself and enlist the aid of Blaine to help him right his terrible wrong by traveling into the past to save Penelope and her maid from tragedy. If they fail, misfortune will haunt the manor and Blaine forever. Unfortunately, the task may be more challenging than either of them ever imagined.
In this spine-chilling tale, boundaries between the past and present disappear after an immortal unintentionally alters a timeline and sends a widower back three hundred years to help him repair it.
