Among her mother's possessions, Makenna finds the deed to a small house on Carnal Cove on the Isle of Wight. Needing time to heal from the two blows she just received, Makenna decides the isolated isle is the ideal spot to recuperate. Her widow neighbor Captain Nicholas Saintjohn disrupts her serenity when he persuades a reluctant Makenna to tutor his son in the fine arts. Even more disturbing, a not so friendly ghost appears and Makenna hears the sound of a weeping child while she falls in love with her neighbor.
