Ashlee Walker believes no man can love her after the blast that caused her disfigurement. Connor Westfield comes looking for a cure for malaria for his aunt. What neither of them count on is their intense passion for one another and the connection that ties them together magically. United by eerily familiar visions of a long dead couple, Ashlee and Connor transcend all barriers to their love and feel a growing urgency for each other, even as they journey deeper and deeper into the swamps and the legend of the Silver Witch. There they discover a long buried secret that demands retribution and a love so strong that it transcends time and space.
