When Carey Constable discovers that her beloved mother is not related to her at all, she is so shocked she takes the first job the agency offers without questioning why something so well-paid hasn't been snapped up long ago. When she arrives at the ancient mansion of Wishbourne Towers she senses evil in the atmosphere. She learns about the glowing apparition of a candelabra with seven lit candles - the ghost which is said to appear before disaster is visited on the Holford family - and feels the terrible force of love for Simon Holford, sometimes so tender and devoted, sometimes a man to fear.
