Chapter 1

Northumberland, Summer, 1815

Lady Rebecca Sumerville could scarcely believe her eyes. Her gaze was fixated on the faint flicker of light coming from Almerry Castle, like a beckoning siren, dancing within the slender lancet windows of the second-story entry hall. She couldn’t contain her astonishment and whispered to her twin sister in hushed urgency, “Phoebe, do you see that?”

“See what? And why are you whispering?” Her sister slanted a curious stare at her.

Why indeed? Rebecca hesitated. Perhaps it was the fear that any abrupt sound might scare the mysterious light away that compelled her to whisper. With a reluctant glance away from the castle, she turned her gaze to her sister and said, “Over there,” pointing at Almerry with trembling fingers, “the light.” Her heart sank as she looked back at the castle, now barely visible against the night sky, only to find the mesmerizing glow had inexplicably vanished.

“I see nothing.” Phoebe shook her head, chestnut curls flouncing about her neck and face.

“It was there. I saw it. A flickering glow coming from the lancet windows.” Rebecca turned, her green eyes fixed on Almerry Castle, yearning to witness the elusive flickering glow once more. She frowned, a sudden unease gripped her, and she pressed a trembling hand to her abdomen.

Her family’s Northumberland estate bordered the ancient stone castle on the opposite side of a small creek. In the light of day, the castle’s imposing silhouette was clearly visible from their home. Throughout her life, Rebecca had spent countless hours gazing at the formidable keep, letting her imagination roam free, weaving stories within its ancient walls.
