In 1814, Sara Stevenson, the well-bred but high-spirited
daughter of celebrated Scottish lighthouse designer Robert
Stevenson, falls in love with a common sailor, Thomas Crichton.
On the day of their clandestine elopement, Thomas
mysteriously disappears, leaving Sara heartbroken, secretly
pregnant, and at the mercy of her overbearing family.
Refusing to relinquish her hopes that Thomas will someday
return to her, Sara is banished to an eerie lighthouse on
lonely and remote Cape Wrath. There she meets William
Campbell, the reclusive yet dashing light-keeper who incites
her ire-and interest.
Soon Sara begins to accept her life on the cape and her
growing attraction to William-until a mystifying package
from an Oxford antiquarian arrives, giving intriguing clues
to Thomas's whereabouts. Through her correspondence with the
antiquarian, Sara slowly uncovers the story of her beloveds
But what she doesn't immediately grasp is that these letters
travel an even greater distance than she could have
imagined-as the boundaries between time and space unravel to
forge an incredible connection between a woman and a man
many years apart.
