An unnamed ghost haunts a bridge crossing the Medway River, seeking help from newlyweds who promise to right a 500-year-old wrong . . .
Elric de Bergville of Windsong goes against his father's wishes and weds his childhood sweetheart, Lady Anne Glanville, at the center of the bridge which connects their families' properties. But the lovers are betrayed, cruelly separated by death and time, forced to walk the earth separately, within sight of one another.
Lady Iris Langley returns to Glanbury, her father's country estate, after a decade of living in London and encounters the Medieval ghost she befriended as a child. Iris learns the ghost is named Anne but can find no record of what happened to her. In despair, she turns to Crispin Bergville, her childhood friend and now Earl of Windthorst, whose estate, Windsong, lies across from Glanbury, separated by the Medway River.
Sparks ignite between the pair and soon Iris and Crispin are betrothed. When the couple discovers initials inside a heart carved into the center of the bridge connecting their families' estates, they believe it is the key to unlocking Anne's story. The pair vows to learn the truth and find a way to set Anne's spirit free.
Will Iris and Crispin be able to solve the mystery---or will Anne and Elric be doomed for all time?
