Arriving too late, Amos Cotswold cannot decipher what the dying Lord Marston is desperately trying to convey, and his failure threatens to destroy the villagers’ way of life. What will become of the estate?
Amos and Lord Marston’s son had been friends, but Crispin hasn’t been seen for 40 years and no one knows if he’s still alive. As the estate disintegrates, Amos finds himself inexplicably haunted by the Marston ghosts in an uncanny parallel with the medieval tale of their past.
Merely finding the rightful heir won’t be enough to save his village; Amos must also determine how the legend ended.
