On a cold, stormy night in 1890, seventeen year old Catherine Whitfield gives birth to her firstborn child - the illegitimate product of her love affair with a young footman at her family's New York estate. Surrounded by the rigid constraints of Victorian society, Catherine is forced by her father to relinquish the child to save her honor, and the Whitfield name. Devastated, Catherine makes a shocking decision to take destiny into her own hands - leaving an eerie legacy for generations to come.

In the summer of 1973, twelve year old Annie Nichols befriends a handsome, young stranger (Daniel) who arrives in her tiny, coastal town of Mystery Cove. Annie is immediately drawn to Daniel's free spirited, unconventional lifestyle and the two quickly develop a unique bond that alarms her family and friends.


Despite the unwelcome protests of their conservative community, Daniel decides to make camp in an abandoned barn on the edge of town. Soon disturbing events begin to occur, in which Daniel becomes the prime suspect.


Daniel has come for a purpose. One that will tear apart the small community - and shatter Annie's innocence forever.
